The tropical disturbance, aka “invest,” or investigation, remains just as cluster of thunderstorms moving through the southern Bahamas. By Sunday or Monday, it could become a tropical depression near the Florida Keys but after that, the track and future strength are uncertain. We’ll watch it very closely. It will likely get into the Gulf with a potential path wide open to all scenarios. Wherever it goes, right now, rain looks like a greater impact than wind. Gaston is not a threat to the US. It will stay in the central Atlantic.
Local weather is calm and mostly dry. Enjoy twinkling stars tonight with lows in the middle 70s. A light northeast wind will push drier air into inland counties where you will end up close to 70.
Tomorrow we get a handful of isolated thunderstorms, more likely nearer to the coast. It will otherwise be a mostly sunny day with temperatures a bit above average. Highs hang out in the lower 90s for coastal counties, but it will be middle 90s for inland counties. Winds will be from the east.
Saturday has 30% coverage of mainly afternoon showers or thunderstorms. Beyond Sunday, we’ll continue in the routine pattern of afternoon thunderstorms with typical temperatures, unless something tropical forms and approaches us.
