WEATHER-PWC


HEAT AND ISOLATED RAIN CHANCES

Our rainfall prospects look isolated tonight with only some spotty rain or thunder possible through this evening.

Temperatures are expected to cool only near 80 along the immediate coastline to mid and upper 70s further inland.

On Wednesday, our rainfall chances look isolated once again. Coverage of any pop-up showers or thunderstorms look to expand to less than 20% of the region. A few isolated downpours or storms could certainly develop in the afternoon or evening, but the majority of the area should remain unseasonably dry for mid August.

Temperatures look warm on Wednesday. Highs are expected to soar into the low 90s along the coast to mid 90s along the US41 and I-75 corridors.

TROPICAL UPDATE

A tropical wave over the Atlantic is showing some signs of possible organization. The National Hurricane Center has pegged the feature with a 30% chance of developing in the next two days. Environmental conditions remain a bit unfavorable for considerable development but the wave will be closely monitored as it approaches the Caribbean. Return to index of stories...
