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

Just another week in August, which is actually a relief because this summer as been abnormally warm and as we know well, abnormally wet. Today's rain coverage will be similar to yesterday's. Overall, a fairly seasonable forecast.

We'll trend the rain chances down slightly toward the weekend, but an isolated storm isn't impossible. No cold fronts yet unfortunately, but we're getting close to that point.

The tropics are busier, which is expected this time of year. Fiona has weakened dramatically, Gaston will likely recurve into the ocean, but the other storm (Invest 99-L) near the Leeward Islands has our interest. Several media outlets are showing it make impact in the Gulf, or the East coast, but at this point, no one is sure. At the moment, it's not a threat. It still has to put up a fight to survive, but it has more of a westerly component than Fiona. We're keeping our eye on it as it develops over the next several days. Just have a plan ready in case we need to act.
