Thursday will bring sunny skies until some storms bubble up in the afternoon hours.  Look for an increasing risk of dangerous rip currents at the Atlantic beaches on Thursday and into the weekend.  Thursday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Friday will feature a sunny morning with periods of showers and storms in the mid to late afternoon.  Friday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Saturday will see lots of sun alternating with showers and storms — starting in the mid-morning in the east coast metro area and the mid-afternoon along the Gulf coast.  Saturday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Sunday’s forecast calls for plenty of sun and periods of quick showers and storms.  Highs on Sunday will be in the low 90s again.

In the tropics, a wave we’ve been watching is now over Central America.  It’s expected to reach the Bay of Campeche on Friday, where it will have a low chance of development during the next five days.
