TROPICAL FORECAST: We are tracking a couple of areas in the Atlantic Basin with a potential for tropical cyclone development. The first is a disturbance that will head toward the Leeward Islands and Caribbean. This has a 30% chance of tropical development over the next 5 days.
The second area is a low and tropical wave located a few hundred miles south of the Cabo Verde Islands. There is a 50 percent chance over the next five days.
MARINE FORECAST: Seas will be 2' to 4' High tide is at 10:29am and low tide is at 4:28pm. Southwest winds 10-15 knots
WEATHER SUMMARY: We are tracking a break from the heat this weekend. It'll still be hot, but not as hot as it has been. High pressure offshore will persist with a trough of low pressure inland. A weak boundary will stall over the area and then lift back to the north by later tonight. This will create instability with the sea breeze front and help to spark off showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon.
We'll see a mix of sun and clouds through the afternoon and that sunshine with south winds will help to warm us in the lower 90s.
Sunday, expect the same, a mix of sun and clouds with a 50% chance of showers and storms in the afternoon.
A weak cold front will approach from the northwest early next week. This will keep the chance of showers and storms in the forecast through Wednesday with a good amount of rain Monday and Tuesday expected.
