Hope everyone enjoyed Independence Day yesterday. For those of you off today, it may be a good one to enjoy at the lake/pool....things are going to be HOT. Highs this afternoon will range from the low to mid 90s with feel like temperatures (seen below) in the mid (and for some) upper 90s. Stay cool, hydrate, and take breaks.
A big story (not expected to impact us) is Tropical Storm Elsa. This storm will work through Cuba this afternoon, then Florida by late Tuesday/Early Wednesday. She will work northeast dumping heavy rainfall across much of the Southeast.
Here at home, the heat and humidity will lead to a few isolated/scattered afternoon showers & storms. These will likely first come tomorrow and Wednesday followed by better chances into Thursday as a low works eastward to our north. Elsa, seen later in the animation, will bring heavy rainfall to parts of GA and the Carolinas.
Stay cool and hydrated this afternoon and into Tuesday. Temperatures will be warm and muggy with feel like temperatures running into the mid 90s for most of the Central Valley. We'll begin to see afternoon showers and storms develop in the days ahead.
