Today: Multiple inches of rain were recorded in areas yesterday from the storms but today storm coverage is expected to be way less. Mostly just isolated showers with more scattered coverage along the immediate coastline. Highs will be high again, near 92 degrees with partly cloudy skies this afternoon. Overnight lows should dip into the mid-70s again and each night for the next 7 days.
Saturday: Scattered showers and storms are expected with highs near 92 degrees. This will be another typical summer day with high dewpoints and humidity.
Sunday-Monday: Rain coverage is expected to be 50-60% but this could all change depending on Fred. How big will it be, how strong will it be and where will it land. If it continues on its current projection, both in strength and trajectory, then it will not directly impact us but will bring enough disturbed air into the Gulf to increase our shower chances. However, this is always subject to change. Stay vigilant.
Tuesday-Friday: More daily rain chances with highs in the low-90s. Hot & muggy conditions expected to continue.
Tracking the Tropics: The National Hurricane Center has Fred categorized as a tropical depression for the moment. The mountains of Hispaniola really tore up Fred and it is about to trek through some higher shear off the coast of Cuba. If it can hold together, it should be able to re-strengthen into a tropical storm when it reaches the Gulf of Mexico. There, it is projected to make landfall on the Florida Panhandle as a tropical storm. This is always subject to change. Stay tuned for the latest forecast updates. There is also a tropical wave west of the Lesser Antilles in the middle Atlantic that has a 70% chance of development into a tropical depression or storm in 48 hours. It is heading WSW and will likely be our next system of concern.
