Showers And Storms On The Breeze; Watching The Tropics

Monday features breezy conditions, along with good sun and some clouds in the morning.  Look for showers and storms to blow through in the afternoon.  A high risk of dangerous rip currents is in place at the Atlantic beaches through at least Wednesday evening.  Flooding at high tide is likely at low-lying locations along the Atlantic coast.  Highs on Monday will be in the mid-80s in the east coast metro area and the upper 80s along the Gulf Coast.

In the tropics, the low about 700 miles southeast of Bermuda has a high chance of becoming a subtropical or tropical depression in the next day or so.  We also continue to watch the western Caribbean for a possible low to form.  This potential feature has a low chance of developing during the next 5 days.
