Tropical Depression 9 Latest; Drier Weather Here

John

Tropical Depression 9 is getting better organized and could become a tropical storm as early as today.  It’s forecast to move inland somewhere in the Big Bend area of Florida by Thursday.  Forecast confidence is high.  That scenario would lead to a drier weather pattern here.

Today will be mostly sunny with a  low 20% chance of a shower or thunderstorm this afternoon.  High 92.

Tomorrow and Thursday our rain chance will be even lower–around 10%.  The humidity will be lower, too.  High temperatures will warm to the mid 90s.

The Labor Day Holiday weekend will be seasonable, with a 20-30% chance of scattered shower each day, highs in the low 90s, and lows in the low 70s.

Elsewhere in the tropics, Gaston is a category 2 hurricane.  It will stay in the mid Atlantic and is not a threat to land.  Tropical Depression 8 is near the Outer Banks of North Carolina; it may brush the coast before heading back out to sea.
