Thursday morning video forecast
After starting in the 50s, we will still be in the 80s this afternoon.
Today and Tonight: The cold front that came through yesterday moved a lot of the moisture and humidity off to the south east. Drier air means temperatures can heat and cool in a larger range throughout the day. Temperatures this afternoon will be in the low 80s and overnight we will be back down in the low 50s.
Up next: The dry trend will continue into the weekend. Temperatures will be in the low 80s in the afternoon and the 50s overnight. Some humidity will move back in on Saturday, but another cold front is queued up to take care of that on Sunday. During the day on Sunday, a front will move through and it may spark up a few showers on the way. After it passes, by Sunday evening, cooler and drier conditions will be on the other side. High temperatures next week will be in the low 70s and overnight temperatures will be in the 40s. Click here to see the 7-day forecast.

FROM THE NHC
A tropical wave located over the central Caribbean Sea continues to produce a large area of showers and thunderstorms. Satellite imagery indicates that the disturbance is gradually becoming better organized, and a tropical depression will likely form within the next couple of days as it moves slowly westward over the central and western Caribbean Sea. Regardless of development, this system is expected to bring heavy rainfall along with possible flash flooding to portions of Hispaniola over the next day or so.
