Saharan Dust is Back Over Florida Wednesday; Keeping Watch On The Tropics

Wednesday features the return of Saharan dust to dry us out.  Look for lots of hot and hazy sun with just the chance of a stray shower in a few spots.  The east coast metro area will see a warm and gusty ocean breeze, and a high risk of dangerous rip currents is in place at the Atlantic beaches through Thursday morning.  Highs on Wednesday will be in the low 90s.

Thursday will bring lots of sun and a few afternoon showers and storms in spots.  The gusty ocean breeze will continue in the east coast metro area.  Thursday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Friday will feature plenty of sun until some showers and storms develop in the mid to late afternoon.  Friday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Saturday will see a mix of sun and clouds in the morning, with showers and storms moving in during the mid-afternoon.  Saturday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Sunday’s forecast calls for mostly sunny skies alternating with showers and storms.  Highs on Sunday will be near 90 degrees in the east coast metro area and in the low 90s along the Gulf coast.

In the tropics, the low in the eastern Atlantic remains disorganized, even before it moves into an area that’s hostile to tropical development.  The National Hurricane Center gives the wave a low chance of becoming a depression in the next five days.
