A disturbance will cross the area today into tomorrow with rain and embedded thunder for the southern 2/3rds of the area. Some locally heavy rains are definitely possible. Scattered showers with a few storms in the Northern regions.
The sticky air mass does not look like it will go anywhere anytime soon. Humid and warm conditions look like they will persist through Tuesday with highs generally in the mid and upper 80s. Afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be possible every day.
In the tropics, Tropical Depression 2 has shown a lot of persistence with its thunderstorm activity, but it has been east of the center of circulation. It is on the verge of tropical storm strength and I suspect will make it there today. Models show a possibility of it making it to just under Hurricane strength and then weakening.
Another tropical system has just emerged off the African coast. This system could also form into a tropical system in the next few days.
