High Rain Chance Today, Watching Dorian


Your Tuesday will look a lot like Monday, with a couple of minor exceptions: we may see a few peeks of sunshine from time to time, and the chance for shower and thunderstorm activity will still be high but a little lower. With the decreased rain coverage and few peeks of sun, highs will be in the middle to upper 80s as opposed to the 80 degree readings we’ve seen the past two days.

A frontal boundary will approach the area on Wednesday, lowering the chances for storms and drying things out for the latter part of the week. Low temperatures will be refreshing with widespread mid to upper 60s possible both Thursday and Friday mornings. Highs will be in the lower 90s the remainder of the week.

The Labor Day holiday weekend will bring typical summer weather for the unofficial end of summer, with scattered afternoon and evening showers and storms about with highs in the 89-93 range and low temperatures 70-74. There will be plenty of time between showers where there will be rain-free conditions, so outdoor activities should go on as planned, just with a plan B in case of rain.

Our attention will be more turned to the tropics later in the week as Tropical Storm Dorian will move through the Caribbean and into the western Atlantic by Thursday. Forecast models are showing a good chance of the storm impacting parts of the Florida peninsula by the holiday weekend; however, the forecast is subject to change later this week as new information is received. Nonetheless, keep an eye to future updates on Dorian, especially for those whose holiday weekend travel plans include the state of Florida.
