The First Warning Storm Team is tracking scattered showers and storms for Sunday.

Partly cloudy with warm and humid conditions overnight. Lows in the low to mid 70s.

Our next chance of rain and storms will come on Sunday, thanks to a cold front. The best chance for showers and storms will be in the afternoon, so keep an umbrella handy! Doesn’t look like it’ll be a total washout by any means.  Highs in the upper 80s. Behind the cold front, there will be a little bit of relief from the heat and humidity, as temperatures dip to the 80s for the beginning of the workweek.

Heading into Thursday and Friday, we could even see highs in the mid to upper 70s, thank to another cold front.

Tonight: Partly cloudy. Warm and humid. Lows in the low to mid 70s. Winds: S 10-15 mph.

Tomorrow: Partly cloudy. Chance for scattered showers and storms in the afternoon. Highs in the mid to upper 80s. Winds: SW 10-15 switching to the NE 5-10 mph.

Tropical Update

We are keeping our eye on an area of low pressure located more than 1000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. Conditions are favorable for a tropical depression to form by early next week, while the disturbance moves toward the west-northwest and then toward the northwest over the central Atlantic during the next few days.

Formation chance through 48 hours…high…80%

Formation chance through 5 days…high…90%

Cloudiness and showers located just north of the northern Leeward Islands are spreading west-northwestward with no signs of organization.  Environmental conditions are not expected to be conducive for significant development.

Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10%

Formation chance through 5 days…low…10%

A small area of disturbed weather associated with a weak low has formed between Cuba and the western Bahamas. This activity is expected to spread westward across southern Florida and the Florida Keys later today and Saturday. Upper-level winds are not favorable for additional development.
