Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, August 24, 2016 at 6:45AM

Continued Nice, But Some Cloudiness

Pleasant, refreshing weather continues today under partly cloudy skies thanks to high pressure sliding east into the Atlantic. However, I feel compelled to mention the slightest chance of a renegade shower this afternoon. Temperatures warm up after today and humidity levels increase. Much of the region will make it through the next seven days with little or no rain, but I had to include a mention each afternoon. Attention is turning to the potential for a tropical system affecting the Southeast early next week--see the Discussion Section of the forecast for more information.

Forecast Discussion

We'll have precious little rain in the next seven days, but I must give in today to a "cannot completely rule out" mention of an afternoon shower today. We'll keep that tiny chance going through Friday. Coverage may tick up slightly Saturday afternoon ("isolated"). Then we'll settle back into barely-worth-mentioning mode for afternoon convection Sunday through Tuesday.

High pressure in the Western Atlantic extends southwest over us. The slight increase in afternoon thundershower coverage is thanks to a weak front that gets close Saturday before heading back to the north early next week. A persistent southerly flow warms temperatures back to above average after today.

But attention is quickly turning to the tropics... Fiona has dissipated in the central Atlantic. Gaston is strengthening, but it's way out in the Atlantic. Gaston turns NW and then north threatening no land mass.

The tropical wave near the Lesser Antilles is the one that has had our attention for a while. It will probably become a named storm (Hermine) in the next 2-4 days as it tracks NW across the Bahamas. It then is expected to pass across Florida and be in the Gulf of Mexico by Monday. Once in the Gulf it gains additional strength before running into the Gulf Coast. Exactly where along the Gulf Coast is unknowable at this time. It could impact our weather later next week.
