Monday will be cloudy and rainy, with lots of showers and storms throughout the day and into the evening.  Heavy rain is possible, and some areas could see minor flooding.  Monday’s highs will be near 90 degrees in the east coast metro area and in the upper 80s along the Gulf coast.

Tuesday will feature mostly sunny skies, but showers and storms will be around.  The east coast metro area will see a few storms in the morning and lots of showers in the afternoon and evening, while the Gulf coast will see periods of showers throughout the day and into the evening hours.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Wednesday will see sun, clouds, and the chance of showers and storms in spots in the morning, while showers will dominate the afternoon and evening.  Look for a gusty ocean breeze in the east coast metro area.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Thursday’s forecast calls for a mix of sun, showers, and some storms.  Highs on Thursday will be in the low 90s.

It’s getting busy in the tropics as August winds down.  First, the wave in the central Atlantic shows some signs of development.  The National Hurricane Center now gives it a medium chance of becoming a depression as it moves west-northwestward.  While the future track of this wave is uncertain, we’ll keep an eye on it.

Elsewhere in the tropics, the wave in the central Caribbean has sputtered out but has a chance of regenerating in the western Caribbean in a few days.  It or its remnants are expected to affect Central America.  Another wave is expected to emerge from the African coast in a couple of days.  And a small low about 600 miles east of Bermuda has a low chance of development and will encounter hostile conditions in a few days.
