Some Sun, Some Storms, Active Tropics


Some sun and some storms today.  High 92 with an easterly breeze.  A few showers are possible in the coastal counties this morning, with a 40% chance of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon.

Thunderstorms taper quickly after sunset.  Low tonight 74.

Rain chance diminishes to 30% Thursday and 20% Friday through the weekend. Highs stay in the low 90s and lows stay in the low 70s.  Humidity will be lower this weekend before rebounding next week.

Gaston is close to hurricane strength.  It will stay in the Atlantic.  An area of clouds and low pressure could become a tropical depression or a tropical storm over the next couple of days.  It’s on a path that could bring it into the Gulf of Mexico next week.  Long-term computer models should be taken with a grain of salt.  Some of the models move this system more northward along the Atlantic coast of Florida.  Still, it’s a trajectory that’s worth keeping an eye on.
