Posted: Updated:

A high pressure system will bring warm and mostly dry weather to the area through Thursday. A cold front will pass Friday and bring cooler weather for the weekend.

TUESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY FORECAST: Expect partly sunny days with low (near 10%) chances for showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures will regularly reach the 80s to locally around 90 for the afternoon and fall to the 60s and 70s at night. 

FRIDAY THROUGH WEEKEND FORECAST: Friday's shower and thunderstorm chance will be an elevated 40%. Saturday will feature a lower 20% rain chance and Sunday's chance could be near 0%. Expect highs mainly in the mid 80s for Friday and 70s to near 80 for the weekend days.   

TROPICAL AREAS OF INTEREST:

- Tropical Storm Humberto, near Africa, may organize into a hurricane by the middle of the week but is not a great threat to cross the Atlantic Ocean.

- The remnants of Tropical Storm Gabrielle have a chance to redevelop near Bermuda this week, but as of Monday, wind shear in the area is hampering the system's organization.

First Alert Meteorologists Gannon Medwick, Colin Hackman, Eric Davis, and Iisha Scott will keep you updated.
