Fred nearing Florida, staying hot locally


Tropical Storm Fred will continue to move north through the day Monday and will make landfall later this afternoon or evening near Panama City. While the storm did strengthen this morning that has been capped by dry air getting pulled into the system. It likely will remain a tropical storm through landfall.

Heavy rain and flooding will be the main threat east of the storm along the panhandle and even well east into parts of the peninsula potentially. There will be a threat of isolated tornadoes east of the center as is usually the case as well.

Locally we will be on the western side of this system today keeping things mainly dry. A few showers will be possible later in the day, especially down to the southwest of New Orleans. But in general we will see hot and dry weather.

Rain chances will go up Tuesday for Thursday with highs still in the low to mid 90s each day before any of the rain develops.
