 DAILY SHOT AT A SHOWER OR T-STORM

Tonight: Mostly clear with some late night fog.  Lows 59-65.  Light wind.

Tuesday: Partly cloudy and warm.  A stray afternoon shower.  Highs 82-88.  Light wind.

Tuesday Night: Partly cloudy. Lows 62-67. Light wind.

Wednesday: Mix of clouds and sun. Warm. A stray afternoon or evening shower/thunderstorm. Highs 83-89. Light north wind.

 Weather Summary:

Over the next few days, periods of sunshine are expected in between a few clouds from time to time. Tonight will be partly cloudy with some areas of late night fog. Lows will drop into the upper 50s to middle 60s.

On Tuesday, we crank temperatures up into the middle to upper 80s.  Humidity will also be in full swing.  Combine the heat and humidity, and we're left with a daily 20-30% chance of a thundershower through the Labor Day Weekend.  Any shower that forms this week may become heavy and not move very fast.  So, where it does rain, high rainfall totals in little time may be possible.

Checking in on the tropics, Erika is no longer a tropical system and chances for redevelopment are unlikely. However, heavy rainfall from the system will still impact Florida and Cuba over the next day or so. Elsewhere, hurricane Fred has formed off the coast of Africa. For now, it's tracking northwest of the Cape Verde Islands and then open sea.  Fred is forecast to weaken to tropical depression status later this week.

 Recap: Highs this week in the middle to upper 80s - lows in the middle 60s.

 Our average high is 84°, low 61°.
