Hot and muggy weekend, afternoon storms possible

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The chance for afternoon storms, along with high heat and humidity, will linger into Father’s Day weekend. Plus we’re watching for the development of “Bret” in the Gulf of Mexico early next week.

Spotty showers and a few thunderstorms will remain possible through the remainder of the afternoon, with activity diminishing for the most part after sunset. 

Father’s Day will be near identical to today ahead of a cold front set to move through on Monday which will increase our rain chances early next week. 

After its passage, our rain chances will decrease substantially beginning on Wednesday with just a pop-up afternoon storm or two.  We’ll also see more sunshine with similar heat that we’ve been seeing lately the rest of next week.

Next week all eyes will be on the southern Gulf of Mexico as we could see the development of our first tropical system of the season (not the year, since Arlene formed a few months ago). If it does form, the storm could potentially move toward Florida or head toward the northwest into TX or northern Mexico. If it goes to Florida we would potentially see some rain on the northern edge of it, and it would likely be a tropical depression or storm.

We’ll know much more about the tropical situation by this weekend!
