Stuck In An Endless Loop Of Sun, Showers, Storms; Tracking The Tropics

South Florida seems caught in an endless loop of showers, storms, and sun (at least until sometime in October).  Our Tuesday begins with some east coast showers.  Then the sea breezes will develop, firing up a round of afternoon showers and storms, especially in the interior and along the Gulf coast.  Highs on Tuesday will be near 90 degrees.
Wednesday will be another day of early east coast showers, hot sun, and sea breeze showers and storms in the afternoon, especially in western areas.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
Thursday will bring the same:  east coast showers to start and afternoon showers and storms concentrated in the interior and along the Gulf coast.  Thursday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Friday’s forecast includes morning east coast showers, afternoon showers and storms along the sea breeze, and hot sun at times.  Friday’s highs will be near 990 degrees.
Saturday will continue the pattern of early showers to the east and afternoon showers and storms to the west.  Highs on Saturday will be near 90 degrees.
Subtropical Depression Leslie

In the tropics, Leslie is now a subtropical depression.  At 5 am, it was located near 31.9 North, 46.2 West, and was moving southeast at 8 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were 35 miles per hour.  Leslie should lose its remaining tropical characteristics by Tuesday night.

Elsewhere, the remnants of Kirk have a medium chance of redeveloping during the next few days before they reach hostile conditions in the eastern Caribbean.  But portions of the Lesser Antilles can expect heavy rains and gusty winds when those remnants move through.  And the area of low pressure now about 300 miles off the North Carolina coast has a low chance of developing into a depression.  It will, however, bring heavy rains and rough surf to North and South Carolina, unfortunately.
