Hot With Gulf Coast Showers, Watching The Tropics

  South Florida will be hot once again on Monday, but showers and a few storms will be back along the Gulf coast.  The day also features good sun along the Gulf coast, while the east coast metro area will start out cloudy but see some afternoon sun.  A high risk of dangerous rip currents is in place at the Atlantic beaches on Monday and is expected to last through Friday.  Highs on Monday will be in the low 90s, but it will feel about 10 degrees hotter.

Tuesday will bring good sun, clouds at times, and the chance of a shower or two.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Look for sun, clouds, and afternoon showers and storms on a building breeze.  Wednesday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

A tropical wave is likely to dominate our weather on Thursday, so look for some sun, more clouds, periods of heavy rain, and gusty conditions.  Thursday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.

Gusty showers and storms will linger on Friday, but we’ll also see periods of sun.  Highs on Friday will be mostly in the upper 80s.

We’re continuing to watch that tropical wave well north of the Lesser Antilles.  The wave is moving west-northwest, and it has a low chance of developing during the next 5 days.  But it will be very near us by then, and its expected to bring periods of heavy rain and gusty winds late in the week.

 

Elsewhere, Dorian has moved into the cold waters northeast of Labrador and is expected to dissipate on Tuesday.  Tropical Storm Gabrielle is in the middle of the Atlantic and will stay there until it dissipates midweek.   And the wave halfway between the Cape Verde Island and the Leeward Islands has a low chance of developing during the next 5 days.
