Hour by Hour

OUTLOOK:  Friday the front may be close enough to trigger an isolated shower or thunderstorm So have kept the chance in. In fact, it is possible it hovers nearby into Saturday keep the isolated chance for a shower around. There will be a battle between upper level ridge building in and trough exiting and we will be right on the battle zone. High pressure at the surface will try and nose in from the northeast and looks to be successful once we get into Sunday.   It should be dry through Wednesday as a ridge of high pressure settles over us and high pressure at the surface remains in control of our weather. Temperatures will run below average over the weekend hitting around 80 degrees but early next week, the feeling of summer returns as the heat and humidity build back in. Highs should have a chance to warm to the mid and upper 80s Tuesday and Wednesday.

TROPICAL UPDATE: Still watching for the development of our next tropical system midweek next week. Looks like the track may take it right into Miami Florida. The National Hurricane Center is keeping an eye on the development of disturbed weather east of the Antilles which now has a 50 percent chance of strengthening and becoming more organized.
