We continue to be caught in the middle of a tropical depression in the Gulf and one off the East Coast. Moisture is streaming into the area from the east, but it is providing nothing more than 20-30% coverage of showers and storms for us through the end of the week. The tropical depression in the Gulf should miss us to the south and east, and not provide any major impact for our weather as we head into Thursday and Friday other than some breezy conditions. Here's the track from the National Hurricane Center:
As we start the Labor Day weekend, we will be getting ready for drier air to move in. This will drop morning lows into the 60s by Sunday morning into early next week, and that will feel very comfortable with the lower humidity! Afternoon highs remain in the upper 80s and low 90s with plenty of sun and no chance of rain from Sunday-Tuesday. Check the latest on the tropics at the Hurricane Center on www.wtvm.com/weather.
