Scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. Highs in the low 90s. Overnight, partly cloudy with lows in the mid 70s.

We start the week off with scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Expect the slightly fewer showers today and tomorrow than what we saw on Sunday. As we move along further into the week however, rain coverage becomes more isolated. Expect typical pop-up variety storms. Temperatures won't fluctuate very much and will be very seasonable for this time of year; hot and humid basically. 

In the tropics, Fiona has weakened and will likely recurve north into the Atlantic and avoiding land. Another system 1100 miles east of the Lesser Antilles will likely interact with dry air and not develop very well. It has a 10% chance of development in the next two days. Another system west of Africa will likely become a depression today and so far, development looks good, but it is very far away.
