I’m Chief Meteorologist Jason Smith with a look at your forecast on this Tuesday. We unofficially set a new record high in Pensacola today breaking the old record of 97. The Gulf Coast is set to contend with another week of impressive late summer heat. We are expecting daytime highs in the upper 90’s again Wednesday. We are likely to see record highs on Wednesday. A backdoor front should bring a few scattered t-storms Thursday. Temperatures will drop to near 90 for highs for Friday and the weekend.
Tropical Storm Imelda hit Texas today near Galveston. It will be primarily a rain maker for the Houston area the next few days.
Hurricane Humberto will track in the open Atlantic this week. The system should get very close to Bermuda Thursday.
Another mid Atlantic tropical wave has developed into TD 10. The models are in fairly good agreement that the system heads closer to the northern Leeward Islands before recurving out to sea.
