Weather

StormTracker Morning Forecast

Today: Patchy fog to start the day. Clouds and sun with warm and humid conditions. Highs in the mid 80s. Widely scattered showers and storms are possible thanks to a passing upper-level disturbance. Rain chance is 30-40%. Not all areas will see rain.

Tonight: Areas of fog overnight. Overnight temperatures in the 60s and 70s.

Friday: Rain chances are on the rise thanks to the same passing disturbance and moisture being pulled to the north. Scattered to possibly numerous showers and storms are likely. Rain chance is 50-60%. Again, not all areas will see rain. Highs will be in the mid 80s. Overnight lows in the 60s and 70s.

Weekend: A weak front moves through on Saturday. It will drop humidity and temperatures just a touch. Rain chances remain low this weekend. Highs will be in the mid 80s. Overnight temperatures in the 60s. Dry and warm on Sunday.

Next Week: We are monitoring the potential for a strong cold front to pass next week. Long-range weather models do not agree on the timing or strength of the front. The GFS has the front moving in by mid to late week. The EURO has the front moving in later in the week. Something to watch for now. The front could possibly stall to our west early in the week,, which would lead to higher rain chances. We will have to monitor for severe weather. The Climate Prediction Center is calling for below-normal temperatures late next week into the first few days of November.

Tracking the Tropics: Hurricane Epsilon has formed in the Atlantic. It is now the 4th major hurricane of the season. It will not be a threat to the US. In fact, it should stay to the east of Bermuda and eventually turn out to sea. Another disturbance in the Caribbean has a small chance of developing as it crosses near Cuba and the Florida Straits. No threat to the Gulf.
