Summer brings intense heat, high humidity and afternoon thunderstorms to the Southeastern USA. Late afternoon and early evening storms can be expected. It all starts with the rumbling thunder, dark clouds and maybe a lightning flash, the downpour follows. Don’t expect things to cool off. Daily temperatures during July and August stay in the 90’s and evenings drop into the 70’s.
A few visitor tips:
Keep an eye on the sky for the dark clouds that roll in
Roll up your car windows if you expect to be away after 4pm
Pack an umbrella
Plan your nap for 4-5PM
Listen for the rumble if you’re at the beach because it’s a mad dash when the rain starts
