SYNOPSIS – The Wiregrass experienced another day of mostly sunny skies and drier heat as dew points in the upper 60s helped limit 100° feel-like temperatures to only a few locations. The next few days can become a little hotter as temperatures reach the upper 90s tomorrow. A disorganized tropical low in the Gulf of Mexico can throw pockets of moisture into our area Sunday and Monday, which can spawn a few lone showers over some areas. However, they will not provide a break from the heat this week as high temperatures break into the lower 100s on Tuesday. Some areas this week can even experience temperatures above our August record of 102°! Highs will hover around the lower 100s into next weekend. Chances for showers return Friday and Saturday.

COASTAL FORECAST SUNDAY– Choppy on Coastal Lakes and Bays. Winds E at 15-20 kts. Seas offshore 2-3 feet.

TROPICAL UPDATE – Multiple batches of showers and thunderstorms in the tropical Atlantic have continued to become more organized. A disorganized low pressure system located over Florida will be moving west through the Gulf of Mexico over the next few days where it can develop into a tropical depression. It is forecasted to remain well south of the Southeast, keeping the region. A tropical depression has formed northeast of the Lesser Antilles where it is maintaining 35 mph sustained winds and moving W-NW at 16 mph. Hurricane Hilary has made landfall in the Baja Peninsula and is expected to arrive in California tomorrow afternoon.
