An abundance of moisture and adequate daytime heating, plus a rather weak upper atmosphere, are sparking off scattered showers, downpours, and thunderstorms once again late today. The areas of rain may not cover huge areas of land, but what is out there is capable of dropping heavy rain which can accumulate to over half an inch. We're not anticipating severe thunderstorms, but a couple of stronger storms can create some gusty winds at times. Overnight, patchy cloudiness will linger with lows in the middle 70s. Wednesday, clouds may become more dominant with more occasional rain and storms in this moist environment. Highs may fall short of 90 degrees in areas of persistent cloud cover.
The tropical moisture continues to lurk to the south of the region in association with a weak, broad low-pressure system off the Yucatan Peninsula. More details on this will be available in the Hurricane Center section of our website.
