June Begins Monday Fast Flow Weather Systems Every Twenty Four Hours
May went out on a solid note with a breezy rather cool day of sunshine. There is a weak upper air disturbance moving through this evening producing scattered clouds in a few places but overall we should see clear skies tonight. It is going to be a rather cool night with most lows in the 40s to near 50 in the warmer urban centers. Radars both regional and local are nice and quiet and should remain so through Monday
As far as Monday is concerned we should see plenty of sunshine though it will still be a bit on the cool side. Most highs will be in the upper 60s to some lower 70s. Winds will be lower as high pressure moves offshore.
High clouds will start to arrive from the northwest Monday night. We are going to be on the edge of a northwest flow all week along and weak weather systems will be moving along in the flow. Nothing here looks to be major and what we will see are a series of fronts going by. This probably brings shower chances Tuesday morning as the first system goes by. We should get a break Tuesday afternoon and evening and then another chance or a few showers Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning.
A weak cold front arrives Wednesday evening and with that a chance for showers or a thunderstorm. Then another break to start Thursday followed by another front and some showers and thunderstorm chances late in the day. The front Thursday night will get hung up to some degree and there could be a few showers or a thunderstorm popping up on Friday but they should be scattered in nature. This could time out to nice dry weather next weekend.
As far as temperatures are concerned we will see 70s on Tuesday before a warm front moves through early Wednesday morning and that could set us up for highs reaching into the 80s Wednesday afternoon before a cold front arrives. Thursday could be another very warm day with highs in the 80s. Friday might make it a three-peat of 80s for highs before it turns cooler after that.
HURRICANE SEASON BEGINS MONDAY
We have already seen 2 named tropical storms in the month of May which is something that hasn’t happen often. June officially starts the hurricane season in the Atlantic and our attention will turn to the Southwest Gulf of Mexico and the Northwest Caribbean where pressures are forecast to be low this week and into next weekend.
Weather models have been telegraphing this scenario for the last 10 days in the long range and it seems as if it is now growing more likely that something is going to try to develop either in the Southwest Gulf of Mexico or in the Northwest Caribbean. The upper flow late next week and next week would generally favor some sort of northwest motion but we can’t be a 100 percent sure at this stage in the long range. The National Hurricane Center has picked up on this showing a 50 percent chance of something developing in the next 5 days.
