Forecast Discussion: Storms will be present by Thursday as a strong cold front sweeps our current front off the coast. It will bring a good chance of thunderstorms through the afternoon, making Thursday a First Alert Weather Day. Heavy downpours could bring up to an inch of rain to the region. Looking beyond Thursday, the forecast for Friday and the weekend looks dry and comfortable! Highs will settle in the low to mid 80s over the three day stretch.

Tropical Update: Larry is currently a category 2 hurricane and is forecast to diminish over the next few days. Larry will continue on its northwesterly track before turning north before reaching Bermuda. The center of Larry will come within 50 miles of the island, which will create a high threat of rip currents for our beaches here in the East over the next several days. Today, rip current threats will be high for all area beaches. Tropical Storm Mindy has formed in the Gulf and will move through the Florida Panhandle.

Thursday

Midday and afternoon storms possible. Rain chance of 70% and highs up to 82. Wind: W 5.

Friday

Mostly sunny with a high of 80. Wind: N 5.

Saturday

Mostly sunny with low humidity. High of 84. Wind: NE 5.
