The shower and storms activity on the radar is picking up this afternoon. Expect the potential for the rest of you Friday for scattered downpours that could produce heavy rainfall and lightning. Where it’s not raining it’s hot and muggy with feels like temperatures climbing to 100 to 105 this afternoon and evening.

Shower and storm chances will remain elevated this weekend with the chance for scattered showers and storms during the afternoon evening hours. Highs this weekend will rise to the upper 80′s to lower 90′s. Next week still remains to look unsettled and active. We will watch a few disturbances in the Gulf of Mexico that could help bring us chances for rain along with a front that will slide south of the area. One disturbances is currently over the Bahamas and has an 80% chance for development. It will tracking westward over South Florida. This will likely become a tropical depression, especially once it enters the Gulf. The track on this system still remains uncertain and could ultimately determine whether or not we see rain by next week. We are also still tracking a few other possible areas for

potential development out in the Atlantic, but are still a good ways away from us.
