9/2 – Payton’s Monday Evening Forecast
A few lingering downpour this evening, but rain will start to clear out and the dry spell starts. The remainder of the workweek will be very hot with highs in the mid 90s, but the humidity will be lower meaning it won’t feel extremely muggy. Rain chances will go to zero through Friday before the moisture returns. Low rain chances and temperatures return as we head into the weekend.
TROPICS: Dorian will continue to slowly move along the East Coast bring high winds and storm surge from Florida to the Carolinas. A disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico will move into Mexico and could become a depression later this week. A disturbance south of Bermuda also has a chance of becoming a depression later this week. It will lift north into the open Atlantic. Another disturbance off the coast of Africa will likely become our next named storm. It looks like it will travel into the open Atlantic as well. The final disturbance has a decent chance of development later this week. It’s currently off the coast of Africa, but a bit further south. We’ll have to watch this one over the next week or two to see how it evolves. Other than Dorian there are no other immediate tropical threat to the United States.
