We’re keeping a keen eye on the tropics, but our weather will actually be drier this weekend. A there’s a skimpy 10% chance of a passing shower or thunderstorm today. High 92.
Tonight will be mostly clear and mild. Low 73.
Weekend rain chances stay low–20% Saturday and Sunday. Highs in the low 90s each day and lows in the low 70s each night. Humidity will be slightly lower, too!
The area of clouds and low pressure near the Bahamas is still just clouds and low pressure. It is more poorly organized today after an encounter with the mountains of Hispaniola. Still, we’ll watch as it approaches the Gulf of Mexico and patch of atmosphere near southern Florida that is more favorable for development into a tropical depression or tropical storm. It’s still too early to tell what, if any, effect this will have on our neighborhood next week. Until I see something that convinces me to change it, I’ll keep a 30% chance of afternoon thunderstorms in the forecast each day Monday through Thursday.
Meanwhile, Gaston spins in the central Atlantic as our only active tropical cyclone. It’s a tropical storm now, but will likely return to hurricane strength soon. Gaston will stay in the Atlantic and is no threat to land.
