Increased humidity and the approach of a storm system will help bring rain chances back to the forecast for Wednesday and Thursday. Rain chances will trend down from Friday into Saturday as the storm system pulls away from the region.
WEDNESDAY FORECAST: Expect partly sunny skies and the chance for showers and thunderstorms to grow to near 30% for the afternoon. Also expect southwest breezes near 10mph and highs mainly in the upper 80s.
EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: Shower and thunderstorm chances will stay elevated - near 40% - for Thursday, but they'll trend down a bit Friday and even more so - to near 10% - by Saturday. Labor Day looks to feature a seasonably warm high near 88 and a 30% chance for showers and storms.
TROPICS: A complex of thunderstorms near South Florida may slowly organize as it pushes west into the Gulf of Mexico in the coming days. Also a must-watch: a cluster of thunderstorms in the central tropical Atlantic (midway between Africa and the Caribbean) may organize into a tropical storm at it continues to march west.
