Fun While It Lasted

Lower humidity and slightly cooler temperatures were fun while they lasted. We have transitioned back to the muggy summer we have come to know very well--warm, humid, isolated daily afternoon thundershowers. That's the story through at least Tuesday. Attention is turning to the potential for a tropical system affecting the Southeast next week--see the Discussion Section of the forecast for more information.

Forecast Discussion

Thursday was a taste of what's to come through the weekend so be ready to soak in sweat for outdoor activities again. Overall, we will not have lots of rain; however, each afternoon will have the threat of a shower or thundershower. Today and Saturday afternoons appear to be the most active afternoons. A weak front arrives late Saturday with no significant affect on our weather. It quickly retreats back to the north.

We are keeping an eye on a strong tropical wave that is moving near the southern Bahamas tonight, and it could become a tropical depression or storm as it moves across south Florida late this weekend. While the ultimate track and intensity of this system remains speculative, it could have some impact on our weather toward the middle of next week (Wednesday at the earliest). If it gets a name, it would be called Hermine. No one knows more at this time.
