Regional Weather: Southeast U.S.

A more summer-like pattern. A front is dissipating across the mid-sections of the Southeast over the next 2 days, and will serve to help trigger afternoon and evening showers and storms in an increasingly humid air mass. Skies will be sunny to partly cloudy for most locations. Showers will be most prevalent in portions of the lower Southeast. Highs in the 80s to low 90s, lows mostly 70s.

 

OUTLOOK:

Overview: Epidemic spread likely in the lower Southeast. A hodge-podge of conditions is expected during the transport events of the next 3 days. The better chances of rain and the higher risks will be in southern GA and FL. Transport events tend to move slowly near the sources and to the east or northeast.
