More Hot & Dry Conditions Thursday, Keeping an Eye on the Atlantic

Daytime highs staying up to 8 degrees above normal through Friday

An upper level high keeps us hot and dry through Friday with daytime highs up to 8 degrees above average through Friday. Won’t rule out a few hit or miss showers/storms, though.

A tropical disturbance to the northeast of Cuba continues to develop and could become a tropical depression over the next 5 days. Models seem to agree that it will cross over the Florida peninsula and head out into the eastern Gulf this weekend. What does that means for our area? Rain.

We’re also keeping an eye on a tropical wave in the far eastern Atlantic near the Cabo Verde islands. This has the potential to develop as it get closer to the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean Sea by early next week. Too early to tell how this could pan out, but we are in the peak of the Atlantic hurricane season, so we’ll need to pay close attention.

Keep smiling,
