PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) -Happy Monday everyone!
It was a slightly active start on radar this morning with scattered storms developing out of the Gulf and moving onshore. The widely scattered showers and thunderstorms continued through the day with a few lingering storms even after sunset. Rain totals today ranged from about an inch to nearly three inches.
Overnight, there’s a chance for stray storms, but most the area will remain mostly dry. We’ll see partly cloudy skies tonight with temperatures dropping into the low to mid 70s.
We’re in a very typical summery setup with the Bermuda High as our main driving force for a fairly repeatable forecast this week. With the ridge of high pressure to our east in the Western Atlantic, clockwise flow around that high will lead toward a southerly wind day in and day out across the Gulf of Mexico. Plenty of warmth and humidity coming out of the Gulf with further daytime heating as our source of lift will create scattered rain chances throughout the next several days.
They’ll be fairly hit or miss, but those that do get the hits will encounter some heavy downpours. Just keep the umbrellas close by each day this week for a scattered storm. It’s a very typical July week ahead.
Your 7 Day Forecast keeps a very similar setup day in and day out this week with a scattered storm possible and otherwise plenty of warmth and humidity.
