Saturday will feature more of the same — good sun in the morning and periods of showers and storms in the afternoon. Saturday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

In the tropics, the area of disturbed weather in the central Atlantic is now Tropical Depression # 11. At 5 am Wednesday, TD # 11 was located near 12.2 North, 42.9 West, about 1400 miles east of the northern Leeward Islands. Maximum sustained winds were 35 miles per hour. TD # 11 was moving west at 15 miles per hour. TD # 11 is likely to reach tropical storm status later on Wednesday (with the next name on the list being Josephine). But this system is expected to face strong wind shear that will at least limit its development — and possibly tear it up. We’ll keep an eye on it, because we are entering what is usually the busiest period of the Atlantic hurricane season.
