No Major Hiccups for Now
We'll continue to see passing clouds coupled with slim chances for shower activity in South Florida for Wednesday night. With more sunshine on tap, expect daytime highs to peak in the low 90s with possible isolated afternoon thunderstorms on Thursday. As we inch closer to the weekend, South Florida will maintain hot highs and seasonal odds of pop-up thunderstorms each afternoon.
Eyes on the Tropics
Tropical Storm Dorian is officially the fourth named storm this hurricane season. Currently spining over 3000 miles away from South Florida, Dorian is tracking west-northwestward over the open Atlantic waters more than 500 miles west of the Cape Verde Islands. Tropical Storm Dorian will be no threat to land, at least through the weekend. Additionally, the system could face weakening from a few snags in the road including cooler water, a pocket of dry air, and strong wind shear ripping the system apart over the next few days. But, some models maintain its tropical storm strengthen as Dorian crosses the Atlantic Ocean into next week.
Additionally, there is an area of low pressure developing about 500 miles east of Bermuda. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance for tropical cyclone development over the next 48 hours as this cluster of rain and clouds tracks to the north.
