September will begin just as August ended with hot, muggy conditions and the continued risk of isolated afternoon storms. Today the chance stands at 30 percent, primarily inland as the east coast sea breeze moves onshore.
Highs will stay in the lower 90s, although with the humidity factored in, it will feel more like the upper 90s and low 100s. Storms will provide some brief cooling relief with heavy downpours within any of the cells that form.
Fair skies will last into the overnight after evening thunderstorm activity subsides. Lows will fall to the mid-70s.
Few changes will be found through the balance of the workweek, although there are signs of increased rain chances by the weekend as a more unsettled pattern resumes.
In the tropics, we are watching Invest 99 shifting off the west coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. This tropical wave holds a high potential for development once it moves into the Bay of Campeche of today. Whether this system develops or not, most models have it tracking west toward Mexico with no threat to Florida. Aside from a few tropical waves, the Atlantic is quiet.
