More Afternoon/Evening Thunderstorms
It will be partly cloudy during the morning but therafter there will be an increase chance for the afternoon and early evening thunderstorms, some of which will pump out heavy rain and generated lightning strikes and some of those could yield strong gusty winds. Temperatures will warm into the lower 90s but coupled with the juicy atmosphere, the heat index (how it feels temperature) will top off to around 102. The same is expected for the next several days, with a slight drop in the rain chance but then an uptick in rain/storm chances for Tuesday and Wednesday.


Beach Water Temperatures are in the mid 80s

Warm Summer Nights Under the Sky

Jupiter, Saturn & The Milky Way
If the sky is clear, look to the south around 10 pm and you will see two bright looking 'stars' ... they are the planets Jupiter and Saturn. Jupiter is the brighter of the two with the lovely ringed-planet Saturn off to its left shining as a dull yellow. To the right of Jupiter, if you are in an area of darkness, you should be able to see what at first looks like a veil of high thin clouds. That is the Sagittarius arm of the Milky Way galaxy, stretching from the southern horizon to the top of the sky.
Perseid Meteor Shower
Middle August is always the time to view the Perseid Meteor Shower. This year, it will peak on the nights of August 10-12. The swift and sometimes bright meteors will radiate out of the constellation of Perseus in the NE sky. It is best to look for them after midnight in that direction.

This is a new product that I have been watching from Tropical Tidbits Climate Models. This is not a forecast but just an 'outlook'. Keep in mind, the 7 day period is the average of those days with some days above the values and other could be below the values. This is used to get a better idea as to what to expect (maybe).
