Summer Heat, Showers And Storms, Again For Florida; Tracking 4 Waves In The Tropics

Monday features plenty of hot sun in the morning, with a few east coast showers.  Then look for widespread showers and storms in the afternoon.  Highs on Monday will be in the low 90s — but it will feel like 100 degrees during much of the afternoon.

Tuesday will kick off the month of September with mostly sunny skies in the morning and periods of showers and storms in the afternoon.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Wednesday will bring plenty of sun and mid to late afternoon showers and storms.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Thursday will feature good sun and a few east coast showers in the morning.  Showers and storms will pop up in the afternoon, and a brisk breeze will develop in the east coast metro area.  Thursday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Friday’s forecast calls for a mix of sun, clouds, and a few showers.  Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s again.

In the tropics, a low about 300 miles east of Jacksonville doesn’t have a lot of showers associated with it yet but will have a high chance of becoming a depression in a few days.  This feature is forecast to move away from land and into the open Atlantic.  A wave in the eastern Caribbean has a high chance of developing into a depression by midweek.  And a wave moving through the eastern Atlantic has a low chance of developing.  Finally, we’ll be watching the African coast later this week for the emergence of yet another wave.
