Discussion

The remains of Tropical Storm Lee continue to slowly dissipate, but there is no large, strong high pressure system moving into the region to clear things out. As a result, while the threat for showers and thunderstorms diminishes somewhat over the next few days, it does not go away completely. By early next week the weather should be generally dry and mild with high temperatures in the upper 70’s. Meanwhile, the active tropical weather pattern continues and the newest two systems, Maria and Nate, will have to be monitored over the next week or so. Tropical Storm Maria is located over the Atlantic and will head on a course towards the SE US coast over the next several days, but may take a sharp turn before ever reaching the coast. Tropical Storm Nate, now stationed over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico, will likely move little over the next few days and could perhaps end up over Mexico rather than on its way toward the US Gulf coast.
