09/13 Ryan’s “Nearby Tropical Storm” Tuesday Forecast
We saw the formation of a nearby tropical storm, Julia, this evening as she finally developed just of the NE Florida coast. This storm is expected to move N-NW into Georgia/South Carolina over the next two days and quickly dissipate. Disturbance 1 is still just moving away from the Western Coast of Africa and it will likely be several days before that system will move into the Caribbean.
Locally, we won’t see much change over the next week. An upper level trof is keeping moisture trapped on the Eastern half of the SE while drier air sits over the West. Surface high pressure continues to keep fronts away but we will continue to see “normal” afternoon showers popping up during the hottest parts of the day, while the rest of the area remains mostly sunny. This pattern persists through the week and into the weekend, before we’ll see some slight drying on Monday.
