Daily Forecast

Today: Partly cloudy with a chance for an afternoon or evening shower or storm. Today could be the driest day of this week.

Tuesday – Friday: Scattered showers and storms. Some rainfall could be heavy.

Saturday – Sunday: A chance for showers and storms.

Baldwin’s Hay Day Forecast

Some days may be downgraded to an X, for a bad hay day, but for now I’ll leave most days at half a hay bale, owing to the mainly afternoon and evening nature of many of this week’s storms. Today is certainly looking like the driest day of this workweek.

Tropics

We’ll likely have our ninth named storm of the season by tomorrow evening. That storm is forecast to track toward the US, with a possible turn out to sea just before making landfall on the Southeast Coast this coming weekend. We’ll track that forecast and monitor its evolution as we go through the week. All interests along the US coastline should monitor the forecast closely.
