Tropical Storm Gaston continues to move west-northwestward in the Atlantic and it will likely become a hurricane by tomorrow. It will follow a similar path as that of Fiona, staying in the central Atlantic. It is not a threat to the US.
We are only halfway through hurricane season so be prepared. Don’t be fooled by misinformation, exaggeration, and cherry-picked information on social media for things that are too far in the future to be reasonably certain.

Local weather is routine with rain coverage lowering for the weekend. Tomorrow we get scattered showers and thunderstorms flaring up in the heat of the afternoon, producing some downpours and then moving on. Coastal locations may get a few morning showers. Rain coverage should be around 40%.
Rain coverage on Wednesday lowers to around 30%. After Wednesday, rain coverage falls to 20% daily. Through the entire week, we stick in the middle 70s at night and in the lower 90s in the day, with inland locations reaching the middle 90s.
