Thursday Aug 25 – As summer draws towards a close and schools begin to open, the weather is getting more active. Despite losing about 2 minutes of sunlight each day now, the temperatures will be rebounding. You will notice a little more mugginess in the air today, and perhaps watch the radar for a band of storms trying to head our way from the mountains. Those may fade away as the simulation below shows, but it will bring back an increase in humidity, plus more heat tomorrow. We could be facing heat index values back near 100°F on Friday As for the tropics, there has been a buzz all week about the threat to the US that has been exaggerated. One storm faded, another should stay well offshore, and a third is the one on the watch list for south Florida.
Here is a quick look at the showers that will fall apart as they pass east of the mountains this morning.
