Here is your forecast for Wednesday, June 26th 2024.

Partly cloudy skies are expected overnight with lows in the upper 70s.

Tomorrow and Friday will have a similar forecast as the west wind continues pushing the heaviest rain inland and towards the east coast.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK: The wind pattern shifts this weekend. Winds from the east will push afternoon showers and storms toward our coastline each afternoon. If you have outdoor plans, the earlier in the day the better. Rain chances over the weekend will be between 60-70% each afternoon with highs in the low 90s.


The National Hurricane Center is watching two areas for possible development.

1. Western Caribbean/Southwestern Gulf of Mexico: A tropical wave over the central Caribbean Sea is producing disorganized shower activity while it moves rapidly westward at around 25 mph. Environmental conditions could become more conducive for some gradual development in a couple of days over the western Caribbean Sea or over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico during the weekend.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 7 days...low...20 percent.

2. Eastern Tropical Atlantic: A tropical wave located a few hundred miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Some development is possible during the next several days, and a tropical depression or storm could form over the tropical Atlantic by the end of the week or this weekend while the system moves westward at 15 to 20 mph.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 30 percent.
* Formation chance through 7 days...medium...60 percent.

Saharan Dust will keep tropical development to a minimum this week.
