Tracking the Tropics today.
Tropical Depression Four was named last night. It is way out in the Atlantic, and does not pose a threat to us in Florida. The storm will move west towards the Caribbean over the next week, but it will be going through a hostile environment so it is not expected to strengthen. In fact, it may dissipate by the beginning of next week.
As far as our forecast, the hot and humid trend will continue for us through the weekend. Highs near 90 with heat indices near 100. Coastal showers are possible in the mornings with thunderstorms moving inland for the afternoon for today and Friday.
On Saturday and Sunday, thunderstorm chances increase slightly as we will see a wind shift which could send a few more storms east doing the afternoon. Monday and Tuesday will be hot and sunny, with a few coastal showers and one or two storms moving inland during the afternoon.
