Saturday Sun And Storms For Florida; Watching The Busy Tropics

Saturday features plenty of sun in the morning, with clouds, showers, and storms developing on the sea breezes during the afternoon hours.  While the bulk of the activity is likely to be in the interior, the urban areas could see some heavy downpours — so localized flooding is possible in spots.  Highs on Saturday will be in the humid low 90s.

In the tropics, the wave we’ve been watching in the central Atlantic has a very low chance of developing as it moves toward the Lesser Antilles and Eastern Caribbean during the next five days.  The wave in the eastern Atlantic has a medium chance of developing, and we’ll keep an eye on it.  Finally, there’s a new area of low pressure in the central Atlantic, about 1000 miles west of the Cape Verde Islands.  This feature has a low chance of developing during the next five days, but we’ll keep an eye on it as well.
