Baldwin’s 7-Day forecast

Daily Forecast

Today: Partly cloudy and hot and humid. A chance for an afternoon shower or storm.

Tuesday – Sunday: Generally partly cloudy and hot-n-humid. A roughly 50/50 shot at a shower or storm each day, mainly in the heat of the afternoons/evenings.

Baldwin’s Hay Day Forecast

Today should be the drier day of the outlook period, so I’ve gone ahead and raised us to a whole hay bale! Just be aware there is a slim chance for a storm this afternoon/evening.

For the rest of the week, 50/50 rain chances, mainly in the afternoon/evening, will keep us at half hay bale days. As always, you all be careful around any storm that develops in your area. Lightning can travel for up to 20 miles from a storm, and tall objects in the middle of an open hay field could be just what that strike is looking for!

Tropics

The tropics are, as expected, beginning to get active this month. We have Tropical Storm Edouard out in the Atlantic. He is moving out to sea.

We have an area of disturbed weather that could easily become our sixth named storm of the season later this week off the Carolina Coast.

Then, we have another interesting system to watch near South America.

I’ll keep you posted on all the latest right here!
