Record heat, a few evening showers Tuesday

High temperatures will be warmer than we experienced on Monday, with many of us reaching the 90s. Ample humidity will put our “feels like” temperatures into the upper 90s and triple digits during peak heating. Boaters will encounter another day of great water conditions. One- to 2-foot wave heights are expected within the Gulf, with a light chop in our bays.

A few showers are forecast for Tuesday. After experiencing patchy fog and a mostly dry start, these will begin forming in the late afternoon. Rain chances will be maximized in the evening, with many of us still remaining dry. No severe weather is expected. Rain chances should clear up after dark.

There is currently one named storm and one disturbance in the Atlantic. A disturbance in the North Atlantic has a high (70%) chance of formation within the next 48 hours. This will likely be a “fish storm” and remain far away from the U.S. The next name on our 2022 storm naming list is Martin.

Tropical Storm Lisa is still expected to strengthen into a hurricane before making landfall in Central America this week. This will bring no impact to Florida or the rest of the U.S.
