A Splash of Rain for Saturday

Saturday's Forecast
A Few Showers

A little bit of rain returns to the area for Saturday. About 20 percent of the area has the chance for showers and thunderstorms today as highs get into the upper 80’s. Tonight, some showers will linger as lows reach near 70 degrees. Sunday may be a bit drier but a few isolated showers are still possible for during the afternoon. Less than 10 percent of the area will have the chance for rain while afternoon highs reach near 90 degrees. Monday will follow with a few more showers but still only about 20 percent of the area will get the chance for rain.

Tuesday and Wednesday will depend on how Erika tracks. As of Saturday morning, it looks like the storm’s most likely track will be to hug the west coast of the Florida peninsula as it moves north. This would be after it moves across parts of the Dominican Republic and Cuba, where high terrain will help to weaken it. Even if it tracks a bit further to the west, we should stay on the western side of the storm which will mean northerly winds that are drier as they come off land.
