Local Weather: Don't let your guard down and have umbrellas handy!
Upper low over Florida is dragging a tail of added moisture to make conditions just right for times of rain. The only difference today is the lack of sunshine. This could actually impeded thunderstorms to form, but the models still insist in anytime downpours Thursday afternoon/evening.
Conditions should be slightly drier for Friday and Saturday before the rain chances go back up on Sunday. The chances for rain will rise due to a weak front that will slide into Northern Florida allowing for deep tropical moisture to move in once again.
Tropics: Still watching four areas
Gabrielle is a storm that is not giving up despite the elements around it that should continue to shred it apart. Wednesday night, it was downgraded to a depression and early Thursday it strengthens to back to a tropical storm. This system is over 500 miles away from the Eastern U.S. and expected to move through the Canadian Maritimes in 48 hours. By that time frame, it will be an extra-tropical system.
Humberto is still a hurricane in the far Eastern Atlantic Ocean. It is now moving a little fast to the North. The latest forecast track shows that it will weaken to a tropical storm early next week in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
Area of low pressure in the Southern Gulf of Mexico is looking better defined on satellite imagery and a recon is on standby to investigate it Thursday afternoon if necessary. Most of the computer models indicate that this will be the next classified system and poses a threat to Mexico in the next few days. Right now it has a high chance to develop and flash flooding and mudslides possible over Mexico in 3-5 days.
A weak disturbance is located East of the Leeward Islands producing disorganized showers and storms. This one has a low chance to develop in the next 5 days as it slowly moves West.
