Nice weather continues through the week.....
Thursday & Friday
Temps will trend upwards as we close out the work week. Highs will be in the upper 80s Thursday before reaching the low 90s Friday. Dew points will be on the rise as well, going from the mid to upper 60s Thursday to the low 70s by Friday. Both days will stay mostly sunny and dry.
We will gradually warm back up to the low 90s as we move into the weekend. Humidity levels are expected to rise as well, however we should see our dew points max out in the low 70s rather than the mid 70s. Rain chances for the weekend again look unlikely as both Saturday and Sunday are expected to stay mostly sunny from start to finish.
A strong tropical wave was located over the northern Antilles Wednesday evening. This area has a medium chance (50%) of developing into a tropical storm over the next 48 hours and a high chance (80%) over the next 5 days. The wave is expected to move to the WNW towards the central Bahamas by late in the weekend. This area will be need to be monitored closely over the coming days. The next name on the list will be Hermine.
The National Hurricane Center expects Tropical Storm Gaston will likely reach hurricane strength on Wednesday, while continuing to further strengthen into the weekend. The storm is expected to work its way northwestward over the deep Atlantic through the next 5 days, tracking well east of Bermuda. Any impact on the U.S. is looking unlikely at this time.
