StormTrack 12 Planning Forecast
SUNDAY: Clouds thicken, strong to severe PM t-storms. Highs 64-68 inland, 62-66 beaches. South wind 5-15, higher gusts in thunderstorms.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Cloudy with thunderstorms. Breezy south wind 15-20 mph, higher gusts in thunderstorms. Low 60-66.
MONDAY: Clouds to some sun in the afternoon. Showers east. Much warmer. Highs 74-78. Southerly wind 10-15 mph.
DISCUSSION: The slight risk zone outlined by the Storm Prediction Center has been scaled back a bit to include areas generally along and east of Highway 17. This means showers and strong thunderstorms are likely through the evening accompanied by gusty winds. An isolated tornado is not out of the question, but I'm going to keep this as a very minimal threat due to the fact that the timing of this system falls during the evening/overnight hours. Areas not included in the slight risk should still be on guard for a strong storm or heavy rain. The most likely and widespread threat will be gusty winds in thunderstorms. Monday will bring a threat for a lingering shower but temperatures will be in the upper 70s. A cold front will pull through Monday night to begin the cooling trend in temperatures through the week.
TROPICS: We are tracking no areas in the Atlantic Ocean that could lead to storm development any time soon.
MARINE: Gale Warning goes into effect at 10 PM Sunday night. Southeasterly wind 10-15, increasing 25-30 knots today. Seas 3-4 feet, increasing 5-8 feet. Moderate to increasingly choppy conditions on rivers and sounds.
