Friday-Sunday: A wet pattern returns today into the weekend with numerous showers and thunderstorms possible this weekend. Today the rain will be isolated to scattered in coverage before it increases tomorrow. This also reigns in highs back to the mid-upper 80s. Saturday’s rains will bring with them flood potential. There is a SLIGHT RISK (2/4) for flash flooding in isolated areas on Saturday. 

Monday-Thursday: Next week will begin with more daily rain chances. The rain will hopefully become more scattered. This will also bring highs back up to the upper-80s to low-90s. Labor Day will still see a 70% coverage in rain. 

Tracking the Tropics: There are 3 tropical systems to watch in the Atlantic.  

The first wave is currently east of the Caribbean and is expected to track northwest, over the Caribbean. It has a 50% chance of developing into a tropical depression or tropical storms in the next 48 hours. That bumps up to an 70% chance in the next 5 days.    

The second wave is just off the coast of West Africa. It is expected to track west with a 10% chance of development in the next 48 hours.   

A third system has now developed into Tropical Storm Danielle. Its been 61 days since our last named storm, a very rare occurrence. It is in the Mid-North Atlantic and will likely develop into a category one or two hurricane this weekend. It is of no threat to North America.   

The tropics have been eerily quiet, but they may not stay that way with wind shear over the Atlantic expected to decrease through September.
