Some of these storms could be slow-movers so watch out for isolated flooding in spots. Operative word: isolated.
Rain chance are coming in at 50 percent Wednesday with highs in the low-90s. Average highs come in at 90 so this is pretty typical for this time of the year, but tell that to the hundreds of thousands of people without power. Thursday looks like a carbon copy of Wednesday.
Much drier air pushes in for Friday and Saturday with rain chances coming in at 20-30 percent. Highs remain a touch above average, drifting into the low-90s both days. Slightly higher rain chances push back in for Sunday and Monday, on the order of 40-50 percent.
As far as the tropics are concerned, remnant moisture from Irma, nearly 900 miles away from us, will bring wet weather to Tennessee and Ohio Valleys again Wednesday. Then we look to Jose sitting 850 miles east of South Florida. Jose is dealing with strong northerly shear and this will likely keep the system from strengthening. Jose makes a slight jog our way before heading north and then “possibly” impacting New England next week.
