A little warmer and a little wetter today. Scattered showers and thunderstorms–a 40% chance, mainly in the afternoon hours. Otherwise, high heat with a high of 93 and heat index of 105.
Try not to overexert outdoors during the afternoon. If you have to work or practice, drink lots of water and take more frequent breaks.
A few thunderstorms linger into the early evening. Overnight will be mostly quiet and humid, with a low of 74.
Tomorrow will be a lot like today, then some drier air moves into the News 5 neighborhood. Rain chance diminishes to 30% Thursday and 20% Friday through the weekend. Highs hover in the low 90s with lows staying in the mid 70s.
Tropical Storm Gaston formed yesterday in the far eastern Atlantic. It will strengthen quickly and will likely be a hurricane by tomorrow. It will stay in the Atlantic and not threaten land. Fiona is barely hanging on as a tropical depression south of Bermuda. And an area of clouds and low pressure is moving westward about 400 miles east of the Lesser Antilles island chain. There is a chance this could become a tropical depression or storm over the next few days as it approaches Puerto Rico and the Bahamas.
