Today was HOT- we topped out at 94° before the storms began to fire up. The evening storms will be primarily over inland areas, but a few fading storms may drift back out to I-75 after sunset.

Friday’s rain chances are similar- just after lunchtime, a few spotty showers will form along the sea breeze. As the afternoon progresses, the storms increase in coverage and intensity. The heaviest rain will be east of I-75 early this evening.

After sunset, some of the rain drifts back toward the Gulf of Mexico as it slowly tapers off. Lows will be in the upper 70s.

The rain chances come down slightly for the Labor Day Weekend. Saturday’s rain chance is 50% in the afternoon, and we have 40% rain chances Sunday and Monday.

With fewer storms around, it will get even hotter with highs in the mid 90s.

In the tropics, we now have Tropical Storm Danielle in the northern Atlantic. It may strengthen to a hurricane, but it should remain stationary and have no impact on anyone. The other two tropical waves should also stay away from the US coastline.
