TROPICAL STORM UPDATE: After a quiet June, the tropics are off to a hot start in July. We have two named tropical systems in the Atlantic, Beryl and Chris. Beryl was our first hurricane of the year, but will weaken rapidly once it enters the Caribbean.

Chris is forecasted to become a hurricane in the coming days at its sits off the Carolina coast. Outside of gusty winds, riptides and rain squalls, it shouldn’t pose much of a threat to the U.S. mainland. 

8-DAY FORECAST: It will be dry for the end of the work week but rain chances will return for the weekend. Temperatures will be fairly comfortable for Wednesday and Thursday. 

Temperatures of 90 and above will return starting Friday and stick around for the start of next week.
