Threat of T’Storms Possible for Night In Venice

It's that time of year again for the annual Night in Venice and we will be crossing our fingers hoping the weather will cooperate the parade and fireworks. The good news is that temperatures on Saturday will not be as hot, but high humidity remains. The bad news is that we run the risk of the potential of severe t'storms Saturday night...

Warmer and More Humid Holiday Weekend

After a stretch of sunny, mainly dry and pleasant weather, humidity is returning for the holiday weekend. High Pressure will build offshore pumping warmer and more uncomfortable conditions. Overall the weather will be near perfect for the beaches this weekend into the 4th...

Great Finish To The Weekend

A great finish to the weekend as high pressure will build in making way for drier, less humid conditions for Sunday. There will be a good deal of sunshine with temperatures around 80. UV Index will again be very high with ocean temperatures running a little chilly (in the low 60s) due to the upwelling.''

Remains Of Tropical Storm Cindy To Affect Our Area

It will be very tropical-like to start this weekend as we will see an increase in humidity ahead of a cold front that is tapping the remains of Tropical Storm Cindy. Friday & Saturday we can expect the threat of some locally heavy downpours. The remains of Tropical Storm Cindy dumped 6-12 inches of rain across the Gulf States is getting pulled up along a frontal system that is approaching our region. While we do not expect a washout, any scattered showers and storms can produce locally heavy downpours in a short amount of time. Fortunately, most of the precipitation will fall north and west of the area. Our best chances of rain will be Friday morning and Saturday morning...

First Day Of Summer Is Here!

Wednesday marks the first official day of summer (arriving at 12:24pm). Although it has felt like it for the last couple of weeks. Summer solstice occurs when the sun is directly over the Tropic Of Cancer which is 23.5 degrees north of the equator. This is when we receive the most daylight, just under 15 hours. Sunset will be around 8:28pm for the remainder of June (peaking at 8:29:01 next Tuesday), then begin setting earlier each day after that...

Strong Storms Possible Monday Evening

Get ready for a round of strong to severe t'storms capable of producing strong gusty winds, hail and heavy downpours. A strong cold front will move in tonight but out ahead of it, warm and humid conditions will continue through the remainder of the day. It will be quite breezy with winds out of the southerly direction 15-20mph with gusts over 20mph+. Temperatures will approach 80 degrees. If you're heading to the beach, water temperatures have risen into the low 70s but keep in mind that rip currents are still quite strong so always swim at guarded beaches...

Humidity Returns Along With Some Showers

Warm & Humid air has returned for the weekend and we will continue to run the risk of a few showers and even a t'storm. A warm front trying to move through the area on Saturday will give us the best chance of rain, however, it won't be raining the whole time. Clouds and fog will dominate the weekend skies with some breaks of sun possible. UV Index will be moderate to high despite the low clouds. Temperatures will be in the upper 70s during the day...

Break In The Heat and Humidity

After several days of heat and humidity, we turn to more comfortable weather. A backdoor cold front has moved through switching winds to the easterly direction allowing for "cooler" air to dominate the region. Temperatures will hold in the 70s and humidity will drop. A mix of sun & clouds is expected for Wednesday. UV index will still be very high...

Great Weekend Weather Ahead!

We are in for a great weekend! High pressure will build in for several days and we will watch our weather turn from sunny and warm to hot & more humid by the end of the weekend. Westerly winds on Friday will help boost temperatures to near 80 at the beaches with no seabreeze. More of the same for Saturday as inland temperatures heat up into the 80s, winds will be more southwesterly which will keep temperatures topping off around 80 along the beaches!...

Cool For Now, Warmth Returns This Weekend

Weather will be improving for the 2nd half of the week as high pressure will begin to build into our area. Clouds will still dominate for Wednesday as cool winds off the ocean will keep temperatures in the 60s...
