Friday features plenty of hot sun, hazy skies, and a few mostly Gulf coast showers and storms. A moderate risk of dangerous rip currents remains at the Atlantic beaches. Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s in the east coast metro area and the mid-90s along the Gulf coast, but it will feel at least 10 degrees hotter, so stay out of the sun and drink plenty of water.

It’s really busy in the tropics. First, the named systems: what’s left of Nana is bringing additional rain to portions of Central America, and Tropical Depression Omar is weakening quickly in the open Atlantic. And there’s a non-tropical low to the northeast of Omar that has a low chance of becoming a subtropical depression before the cold waters of the North Atlantic do it in.
We’re also watching three features in or near the eastern Atlantic. One is the low which has been meandering for the last few days, and it has a medium chance of development during the next several days. A vigorous tropical wave that’s now south of the Cape Verde Islands has a high chance of becoming a depression, and we’ll watch it closely Finally, yet another wave is expected to move off the African coast in a couple of days, and this wave has a medium chance of developing by early next week.
