Regional Weather: lower Southeast U.S.

Hot and dry. High pressure is entrenched over the region at the surface and increasingly so aloft, leading to hot and dry weather. A cold front drops into the upper Southeast but no farther. Some isolated showers may occur; best chance Monday. Highs in the upper 80s and 90s, lows in the upper 60s and 70s.

 

OUTLOOK:

Overview: Epidemic spread possible in southern FL. Though dry weather will occur over the large majority of the lower Southeast, some showers will fall near the known sources Monday and Tuesday. This yields slightly favorable to mixed conditions during those transport events. Events won't threaten other growing regions. They move west to WNW each day. .
