Weather forecast for Charles’ Pinpoint – Saturday July 3rd

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) – Showers developed and moved east along the Big Bend coast on Saturday morning, but more storms are expected in the late morning afternoon. A cold front was north of the observation area, keeping the air drier to the north. An upper low pressure trough was over the east coast on Saturday morning, but is expected to de-amplify and move northeast over the weekend. The front is expected to remain in the region but dissipate by Tuesday.

Chances of rain on Saturday and July 4th will be high for the viewing area with an overall chance of 60% with highs from the mid-80s to near 90s on both days. There is a risk of showers and thunderstorms when towns and villages host fireworks; therefore, it is best to keep an eye on the weather on Sunday. Radar and lightning data can be retrieved from the WCTV Pinpoint Weather app, and can be found on the Google Play and Apple app stores.

Chances of rain are expected to drop on Monday, but the forecast will depend heavily on what happens with Hurricane Elsa. The disorganized hurricane on Saturday morning was centered 110 miles southeast of Isla Beata, Dominican Republic and was moving west-northwest at a very rapid speed of 31 mph. The National Hurricane Center forecast track indicates the storm is entering the Strait of Florida and the eastern Gulf of Mexico on Monday, but they warn that the forecast remains uncertain. Elsa has to be watched over the holiday weekend.

Chances of rain will be around 40% to 50% next Thursday and Friday with highs near 90.
