9/30 – Rob’s Monday Afternoon ” Hot and Rain-Free” Forecast

A very broad open tropical wave is currently moving through the larger islands of the northern Caribbean this morning. This area will continue to march slowly west into the gulf by Thursday night. Conditions do not look very hospitable at the moment with respect to deepening or developing. But that is not the main interest. We are looking for any chance to get rainfall and this could help. The first chance for rain will move into the area Friday and stalls somewhere at or just off the coast. Not expecting a lot of interaction between the tropical wave and this front. But those who fall to the dry air side of the front will have a much needed break from the heat and humidity. The second stronger front should move near the area by the start of next week. This front may be progressive enough to draw a good bit of the tropical moisture northward ahead of and along the frontal boundary. We will have to see how this plays out…
