TRACKING MORE STORM CHANCES

The onshore flow continued on Thursday, with scattered downpours and storms developing in coastal areas and then moving inland. This activity may try to push back into the Urban Corridor this evening as temps fall into the 80s. The rain and storms will slowly end overnight, with lows in the mid to upper 70s.

Storm chances will continue into Friday, but with some changes. Winds will shift to the south and east, ending the morning rainfall threat. However, scattered PM showers and storms will likely be a good bet in the Urban Corridor, with activity diminishing in the evening. Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s.

More moisture works into the area for the weekend, increasing the rain and storm chances. The activity still looks to be scattered, but coverage will likely be greater than during the work week. Highs both Saturday and Sunday will be in the low 90s.

The extra moisture looks to linger into early next week, keeping PM storm chances elevated. As we move into Tuesday and Wednesday, some slightly drier air will arrive, reducing the coverage of the PM activity.

TROPICAL UPDATE

We are still keeping a close eye on a tropical system east of the Lesser Antilles. This system looks stronger than Wednesday and the National Hurricane Center said it is nearing tropical depression status.

The hurricane center has given this system a 70% chance of development, but it could become a Tropical Depression later tonight.

All the forecast guidance has this system still impacting the Lesser and Greater Antilles, before moving northwest toward the Bahamas. It does not look like this system will impact Florida.

Elsewhere, no major activity is expected over the next 5 days. Return to index of stories...
