We’ve got some changes ahead for Sunday:
The chance for sprinkles and showers will exist through late Sunday morning into the early afternoon. That being said, it won’t be raining the whole time and much of the day may end up rain-free. Highs will be in the low 70s with some breezes out of the northeast at 10-15 mph with some gusts at 25 mph at times
The tropics are waking up! Tropical Storm Dorian has formed in the central Atlantic and could form into a hurricane Tue/Wed in the northeast Caribbean.
Something else we’re monitoring in the tropics is a cluster of showers and t’storms off the coast of Florida….that could develop into a tropical storm in the coming days. The entire east coast needs to monitor this disturbance closely. The National Hurricane Center said this area has a good chance of developing into a tropical cyclone. We’ll watch it closely!
If it materialized, it could end up passing offshore from our area mid-week. We would likely get some rough surf but not see major impacts. A separate front may draw in some moisture and give us the chance of showers and thunderstorms late Wednesday into Thursday.
Please stay tuned for changes; we obviously need to pay close attention anytime tropical systems are lurking offshore from the east coast.
