August’s Debut-a Winner. Sunday not as Stellar…

Synopsis:

As we turn the page to August today the adjective to describe the weather is spectacular.  It will warm and sunny with low levels of humidity. Tonight and Sunday will feature a push of tropical air from the South. This will result in high humidity and spotty showers and storms through Sunday. It will not be a washout.

All eyes then turn to Hurricane Isaias. The storm will head through the Bahamas today. Confidence continues to increase that Isaias will move along the Florida coast on Sunday as a category one hurricane. Whether Isaias is a minimal hurricane or tropical storm; it will ride along the coast (either just inland or along) and most likely affect our area on Tuesday. By that time the storm will be rapidly moving. The potential is there for areas of heavy rain and gusty winds. The specifics will be fine-tuned as the even nears. High surf and beach erosion will occur.

The storm will move out of the area on Wednesday and the sun will return.

Stay Tuned.

July’s Finale-Damp & Cooler…

Synopsis:

An upper level disturbance will move through the region this morning with scattered showers and isolated storms. It’ll be much cooler due to the rain-cooled air and clouds. The sun may make a return at times especially North of the City.

As we turn the page to August this weekend the humidity will return. Hazy skies are expected both days. It will warm and mainly dry. Spotty storms are possible on Sunday it will be steamy.

All eyes then turn to Hurricane Isaias. The storm will head through the Bahamas today and Saturday. Where it goes from there is still uncertain. The storm will head North. Will it be into Florida or stay offshore?  From there the track will be up the coast-inland, along the coast or offshore?  The track will determine what conditions will occur in the tri-state area. The track map is above. As you can see the cone of uncertainly expands through time. This will be fine-tuned over the weekend.
