The week begins with a refreshing feel of sunshine and low humidity, but slowly returns to "normal" conditions with afternoon storms by midweek.
Gorgeous weather today, a "perfect 10" on the skymeter! Expect a sunny sky with low humidity, along with highs reaching near-normal in the mid to upper 80s.
Tomorrow, sunny and a touch hotter, with highs returning to the lower 90s. The heat and humidity will continue to build by the middle of the week, which will encourage the return of afternoon scattered showers and storms by Wednesday.
A cold front moves through the area, bringing this week's best chance for rain and storms on Thursday, though some afternoon pop-up storms will linger all the way through the weekend with temperatures staying in the 80s and 90s.
IN THE TROPICS: Tropical Storm Chris formed Sunday off the NC coast and is expected to move very little over the next couple of days, with some strengthening expected (likely a hurricane by Tuesday). Eventually, the system is forecast to move northeast by mid-week into the open waters of the Atlantic. The forecast continues to call for Chris to become a hurricane by Tuesday. Other than rough seas and rip currents along the coastline, no direct impacts to the east coast are expected at this time.
Beryl has weakened, and is no longer a hurricane or tropical storm. It is forecast to bring heavy rain across the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and Hispaniola on Tuesday. Later in the week, there appears to be an opportunity for the remnants of Beryl to regenerate when the system moves through the Bahamas and into the southwestern Atlantic closer to the Florida coast. Therefore, we will continue to watch this system very carefully over the next several days.
