Current Active Tropical Systems

Current Active Tropical Systems

Today is the last day of summer, and it certainly feels like fall is already here. Temperatures today were only in the upper 70s to lower 80s across the entire state. The good news is that the temperatures won’t top the mid 80s all week. Monday is the first official day of fall, and with highs in the middle 80s and sunny weather, it will feel like fall. The rainmaker that moved through on Friday and Saturday will be long gone by Monday, and high pressure will begin to move in and give us sinking air. With that being the case, we will have limited clouds and no rainfall in the forecast. With high pressure positioned to our northeast, we will have an east flow around the highs, which will drive slightly cooler and drier air into our area. Expect low humidity values to hang around through the rest of the week.

The nice weather will be here from Monday through next Sunday. Highs will be in the lower to middle 80s, with lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s. The weather will be nearly the same each day. The only trouble we will be watching is the tropics. There is an area of low pressure over the eastern Caribbean that could develop into a tropical depression or storm at anytime over the next 24 to 48 hours. In-fact, a reconnaissance aircraft is investigating this system right now. We will be able to tell whether a tropical depression or storm has developed later this afternoon, so stay tuned. The next name on the list will be Kyle. Be sure to tune in tonight at 10 p.m. for the latest on your forecast. Have a great Sunday!
