Not as windy, Not as Wet...
Posted by Brent Cameron
After days of downpours and strong winds, our local weather is quieting down. Of course, we're still in the thick of the Rainy Season so there could be some showers popping-up on occasion... just not as frequently! If you're making plans for the late-week and weekend, expect only random showers around.
On the large scale, a huge swath of drier air has been building-in behind the former Tropical Storm known as Debby. What's left of the disturbance continues to push away from Florida, after leaving our state drenched since last weekend! By the way, the last advisory was written on Debby (as a tropical entity) at 5 pm on Wednesday. The remnants will continue moving toward the northern Atlantic, but it's unlikely to get reorganized, on its current path.
Elsewhere in the tropics, we're watching a spin in the central Atlantic Ocean. For now, it has a very low chance of developing (at least over the next few days). Historically, it's in a region that's more "tropically active" LATER into the season. We'll continue to watch it, and there's plenty of time to monitor the wave as it gradually approaches the Lesser Antilles.
Here at home, expect high pressure to be our general weather-maker. In the coming days, the high pressure area will overspread the region from the north and west (moving into the Gulf of Mexico). Some limited showers and storms may flare-up along the daily sea breeze. Otherwise, since wind speeds will be much lighter, it will feel hotter than it has in recent weeks!
