Our stretch of record heat continues.
We shattered yesterday's record high of 91 from 1991 with a blistering 96. That ties the highest temperature on record for Armstrong International in May and it's by far the earliest date with the previous being the last week of the month.
Today will be another hot day as highs reach the lower 90s. For the luckiest ones you may see a cooling shower, but that will be the exception for most.
We will see some changes by tomorrow as high pressure breaks down and more moisture is available for afternoon storms.
The non-tropical area of low pressure over the Eastern Gulf of Mexico looks even less likely a candidate for any subtropical or tropical development. The National Hurricane Center is only giving the system a 10% chance to develop now in the next 24 to 48 hours before moving onshore over the Florida Panhandle.
Regardless Florida looks very wet, and we will remain on the mostly dry side of the system. We will continue to monitor.
