Threats

For today and tomorrow, scattered afternoon storms could be on the stronger side. Widespread severe weather is not expected.

We will see the threat for a complex of storms or two to drop in on us from the north on Friday. I’ll keep an eye on that, as these types of systems are difficult to predict this far out.

Today – Friday: Hot and humid. Scattered afternoon/evening showers and storms.

Saturday: Partly cloudy and hot and humid. Only a slight chance for an afternoon/evening storm.

Sunday – Monday: Scattered mainly afternoon/evening showers and storms. Otherwise, hot and humid.

Tuesday: Partly cloudy.

Baldwin’s Hay Day Forecast

The forecast for next week continues to trend drier. That drying trend would begin Tuesday. Until then, we’ll see 50/50 rain chances each day, especially in the afternoon/evening. The only exception is Saturday, when drier air will likely keep rain chances in the 20% range.

It looks like we will have Tropical Storm Fay off the East Coast by this weekend. The storm should stay at sea, but it could threaten portions of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast coastlines. I’ll keep you posted.

Records

On this day in 1975 three people were killed and six others were injured when lightning struck a walnut tree near Mayo, FL. The nine people were stringing tobacco under a tin shed when the bolt hit the nearby tree.

Long Range Outlook 

Normal temps and below normal rainfall are expected from the 13th to the 17th of July. In other words, the forecast should trend dry and very warm.
