Spotty Storms For Father's Day, But Tropics Coming Alive

Tropical forecast still uncertain for now.

6-17-2017 - Skies will stay dry Saturday night and into Sunday morning with temperatures dropping to near a muggy 75 degrees.

A few spotty showers and storms will fire off early Sunday afternoon, but most of us will stay dry for Father's Day. Highs will be near 90, but the high humidity will make it feel closer to 100 degrees.

We will stay near 90 degrees in the first half of the workweek with a few more spotty showers and storms to dodge each afternoon.

Summer officially kicks off Wednesday, but we are already in hurricane season.

The National Hurricane Center is giving an area of low pressure in the NW Caribbean an 80 percent chance of developing into at least a tropical depression in the next 5 days as it moves into the Gulf of Mexico. It's still too early to say where the storm could go if it develops.

Another system is in the Atlantic and could develop as it moves towards the Caribbean next week.
