Today's Forecast Image

SATURDAY: Conditions will continue to be hot and humid with highs near 90 and heat index values near 100.  Scattered showers and thunderstorms with cloudy skies (40% rain chance) are likely, especially in the afternoon and evening. Some storms could be locally strong. Low temperatures will be in the low 70s. 

SUNDAY AND MUCH OF NEXT WEEK: Mostly quiet an more seasonable. Each day will be mostly to partly sunny with high temperatures topping out in the mid to upper 80s with lows in the upper 60s to low 70s.  Rain chances will range from near 0 up to 20% each day. The one thing we'll have to watch is the progress of the new tropical system. We may see increasing swells, onshore flow, and a risk for rip currents by mid week. 

NEW STORM FORMING? An area of low pressure between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic is beginning to show signs of developing into a tropical storm. It is likely to form within 24 hours and would get the name "Cristobal".

WHERE MIGHT SUCH A STORM GO? A jet stream trough may be strong enough to guide this potential system between the Carolinas and Bermuda next week, so it's definitely a system to watch! Stay with us in case of changes or westward wobbles.
