FORECAST

Clear to partly cloudy overnight with lows dropping into the mid and upper 70s. Friday afternoon will be hot and humid with highs once again rising into the low and mid 90s. Most if not all of the rain and storms will be east of I-75 Friday with a pattern change just in time for the weekend.

Starting Saturday upper level wind will shift which means sunny mornings and stormy afternoons. This pattern will stay the same through the middle of next week. Lows throughout the period will be in the mid 70s with highs in the low to mid 90s.

The National Hurricane Center is also monitoring two other areas for possible development.

The first is a tropical wave over the western Caribbean that is forecast to emerge over the southern Bay of Campeche on Saturday. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive to support some gradual development of the system before it moves into mainland Mexico early next week.
Formation chance through 48 hours is low near 10 percent.
Formation chance through 5 days is low at 30 percent.

The second is a strong tropical wave that is expected to emerge off of the west coast of Africa on Saturday. Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for development thereafter, and a tropical depression could form by early next week as it moves west-northwestward over the far eastern Atlantic near the Cabo Verde Islands.
Formation chance through 48 hours is low near 10 percent.
Formation chance through 5 days is medium at 60 percent.
