Discussion

There will be some improvement today in the overall extremely moist weather pattern of the last few days as the widespread showers and thunderstorms that we’ve experienced recently will turn into more of the scattered variety. The threat for a shower or thunderstorm will continue tomorrow and Sunday as well, but the weekend will feature lots of rain-free time. Generally dry weather is expected to start the new week with temperatures primarily in the 70’s during the afternoon hours. 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.
