8/26 – Rob’s Monday Morning Forecast
Rain to start you Monday morning with the chance for heavy downpours through this afternoon. Rain chances should start to decrease later this evening into tonight. Temperatures will warm Tuesday with low rain chances and the next focus being an approaching front due to swing through by Wednesday. With building instability out ahead of the front, cannot rule out some showers/strong thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon, primarily along and north of I-10. Drier air behind this front won`t build in across the area until early Thursday morning, which will lead to a crisp feel to the air Thursday and Friday mornings. Afternoon highs will still build up to 90 degrees, with overnight lows in the mid to upper 60s likely Friday morning. Long-range guidance quickly kicks out this drier air by later Friday through the upcoming weekend, as we return back into the moist tropical easterlies. This will drag rain chances back up next weekend to the hit-or-miss coverage.
We will continue to closely monitor the future progression of Tropical Storm Dorian. Any potential track in the long-range could lie anywhere from the open Atlantic, east of Florida to a dissipating system in the central Caribbean. Main takeaway is it is too far out to dive into details or side one way or another on guidance, but will continue to be closely watched through the week and especially next week.
