STRAY SHOWER TONIGHT
TIMES OF SUN AND CLOUDS SUNDAY
FEW SHOWERS ALONG THE WAY
FORECAST IN REPEAT MODE NEXT WEEK
Overnight: Increasing clouds. Shower possible. Lows 58-63. Light wind.
Tomorrow: Times of sun and clouds. 40-50% chance of a shower or thundershower. Highs 77-82. South wind 5-10 mph.
Tomorrow Night: Partly to mostly cloudy. Few showers and rumbles of thunder. Lows 59-65. Winds light.
Monday: Warm and humid. Isolated showers/t-showers possible. Highs 78-84. Light wind.
Humid air continues to make its way into the area overnight. For that reason, we can't rule out just a stray shower tonight. Most of the area stays rain-free, so resume weekend plans! Overnight lows will be fairly seasonable - upper 50s on the mountains and low 60s in the valleys.
We are tracking a weak area of low pressure currently centered over the Florida Panhandle, but unrelated to what was Tropical Storm Erika. Regardless, this will help allow the flow of humid air to enter the region, along with a 40-50% chance of showers. Not everyone is going to see rain, but have a backup plan just in case you have outdoor activities. Remember, you can keep up to date with the StormTrack 5 Mobile App for current and interactive radar.
As this weak low pressure system passes, we're left with a repetitive forecast by the middle of the week. Warm and humid air will still be a player in our weather, with each afternoon and evening offering up a chance of an isolated thundershower. Expect temperatures to run just a bit above the average. Summer isn't letting up just yet!
Checking in on the tropics, Erika is no longer a tropical system. Its interaction with the high terrain of Hispaniola essentially shredded it up. Chances for redevelopment are unlikely. For folks with interests in south and central Florida, however, should know that heavy rain and gusty winds are still part of the forecast from Sunday through Tuesday.
Recap: Highs this week in the middle 80s - lows in the middle 60s.
Our average high is 84°, low 61°.
