Sunday will see mostly sunny skies alternating with passing showers and storms.  Sunday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

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

The tropics are starting to get busy, as we expect in August, and there are a couple of other areas we’re watching.  One is a wave that is just emerging from the African coast.  It has a medium chance of developing into a depression during the next five days.  And there’s a wave in the central Atlantic that is in an area that’s marginally conducive for development.  This wave has a low chance of development during the next five days as it moves west-northwestward and near the Lesser Antilles.
