It’s the first Saturday of summer, and The Weather Authority noted that it will feel like it with a typical summertime pattern in place.

Temperatures will reach the low to mid-90s today, with scattered PM storms in the forecast.

“We will start out with the sun and clouds, and then clouds will begin to increase throughout the day,” added The Weather Authority Meteorologist Lauren Kreidler.

There is a good chance of seeing scattered storms each day this weekend and into next week.

“Beachgoers and boaters will need to watch the sky later this afternoon and evening as showers and storms begin to develop,” said Kreidler. “Winds will be out of the southeast and west at 5 to 10 knots.”

There will be a light chop across our bays, and the Gulf wave heights will top out at around 1 to 2 feet.

Looking at the tropics, the area where Tropical Storm Alberto developed last week in the Southwestern Gulf has a 50% chance of developing in the next week. Aside from that, we are not tracking anything else in the tropics at this time.
