Weak Tropical Wave Brings Showers, Storms Today. Watching Tropical Disturbances

Showers, Storms

Faith Based Events

More rain arrives on Tuesday as the tropical wave we’ve been watching arrives. Look for clouds, showers, and storms — along with periods of heavy rainfall. Highs on Tuesday will be near 90 degrees.

Clouds, showers, and storms linger on Wednesday, and localized flooding is possible from all the rain. Wednesday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

Thursday will see some sun, more clouds, and periods of showers and storms. Thursday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Showers, StormsThe tropics remain busy, but there is some good news. The wave we’ve been watching remains poorly organized a couple of hundred miles north of the Leeward Islands, and it now has a low chance of developing before its arrival in our area on Tuesday into Wednesday — but it will bring plenty of rain. Harvey has degenerated into an open wave in the central Caribbean and has a medium chance of redevelopment before reaching Central America. And the wave nearing the central Atlantic has a low chance of developing and is on a course that should keep it far from land.
