You might notice a slight difference today with humidity being a bit lower. However, temperatures are still expected to climb into the mid-90s with a heat index in the upper 90s later this afternoon. There is still a slight chance that a few isolated storms will form, especially in Brevard and Volusia counties due to a weak sea breeze set up late in the day. In the meantime, we will have partly sunny skies and a nice day overall.
Any storms that do develop should die down after sunset, which is 8:16 p.m. this time of year. Tonight will be mostly clear and muggy with lows in the mid-70s overall.
By Friday, moisture will stream back in from the south, creating a more favorable environment for afternoon storms. Rain chances will be back up to 50 percent by then, lasting through the weekend. Highs will remain at or slightly above seasonal levels, in the low to mid-90s. The humidity will be back too, making it feel more like 100 degrees or greater.
In the tropics, the main focus is Invest 93, an area of low pressure still trying to get organized, roughly 850 miles southeast of the southern Windward Islands. This feature has a 70 percent chance of development over the next 48 hours to five days as it tracks west-northwest. Models are in agreement of a path toward the northern Lesser Antilles before curving northwest to the Bahamas but staying well east of Central Florida. There is still much uncertainty over the forecast intensity or classification of this storm.
