Thursday Night: Mostly Clear. Humid. Low: 74.

You will notice a strong southerly breeze each afternoon with wind speeds around 15 miles per hour. Some locations may experience gusts of up to 25 miles per hour at times.

Our next chance for rain arrives on Saturday, While the daytime rain chances are low, scattered showers and storms could impact your evening plans. Keep the umbrella with you on Saturday night. Sunday through Wednesday will feature a healthy opportunity for rain each day. Some of the storms could produce very heavy rain that could lead to minor street flooding. Daytime highs come down to the upper 80s thanks to the cloud cover and nearby storms.

The tropics continue to show no immediate signs of waking up and there is no expectation of tropical development in the next 5 days.
