A good, but hot weekend for yard work
Warm and hot without a refreshing shower today. Highs in the mid 90's under mostly clear skies. Overnight, clear with lows in the mid 70s.
It's another repeat without the rinse. The mid 90s return today and we slightly increase the heat and humidity through the weekend. A sprinkle here or there has been observed through the week, but you'll be the lucky one to see it at your house today. This pattern continues until next week, when we do see the possibility of more showers and thunderstorms. I won't even rule out an isolated shower this weekend, but the coastal communities have a best chance of seeing one.
The showers next week will cool us down a bit. A few showers are possible on Monday, but expect a better chance of showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The tropics are fairly quiet, but we're watching a little disorganized area again around the Yucatan Peninsula. We don't expect any rapid intensification with this anytime soon however.
