StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today: Sunny skies with a north wind around 5 to 10 mph. Highs will be in the mid and upper 80s. It will be less humid, thankfully. Enjoy – don’t forget the sunblock as U.V. Index will be “extreme” which means burn-time is 10 minutes or less.

Tonight: Mainly clear and quiet. Low temperatures will be in the 60s.

Friday: Sunny and warm. Humidity levels will still be on the lower side. High near 88. Overnight temperatures will be in the 60s once again.

Saturday: Mostly sunny with humidity gradually creeping back up, but for mid June, it will still be tolerable. A stray shower may pop up thanks to another front trying to move into the region, but for now, we are keeping rain chances out of the forecast. High temperatures will be around 89. Overnight temperature near 68.

Tracking the Tropics: A tropical wave just east of the Windward Islands has a low chance for formation through the next five days. The National Hurricane Center says, “Although significant development is not expected due to dry air and adverse upper-level winds, some areas of heavy rain and gusty winds are possible across portions of the Windward Islands later today through early Friday while the wave moves westward at 15 to 20 mph.”
