Rain chances coming in the near future

Drier air remains in place through the end of the weekend, making for a sunny rest of the weekend. Also, making for lower relative humidity values across the region. We will see patchy fog in the mornings for the rest of the weekend. Highs will remain under triple digits on Sunday, but the heat index will be in the triple digits. Make sure you’re staying hydrated if you have any outdoor activities, and take plenty of breaks in the shade or in the A/C.

The upper level ridge over our area is expected to weaken and move to the north, which allows for some intrusion of moisture heading into the work week. The sea breeze will be able to bring us moisture from the Gulf, so chances for sea breeze showers and thunderstorms will be abundant throughout the week. As usual with the sea breeze though, not everyone will see much-needed rain. We’re looking at highs in the mid 90s throughout the work week and into next weekend. Heat indices will rarely be at heat advisory criteria, but will still be in the triple digits. Rain chances throughout the week range from 20% to 40%.

As for the tropics, we still have a disturbance off the Cape Verde Islands we are monitoring for development. It has been given a 50% chance to develop over the next 5 days.
