Hit & miss storms return on Thursday

It was a mostly sunny and hot Wednesday afternoon. Our rain chance is very low tonight, and lows will drop into the mid 70s.

We have a better chance for showers and possible thunderstorms on Thursday and Friday, mainly in the afternoon. We expect much drier conditions over the weekend and into next week, allowing us to see more sunshine and dry out. It is going to be hot with highs for the next week or so in the upper 80s to low 90s..

In the tropics, Florence is a category two hurricane and forecast to make landfall along the Carolina Coast in the next 48 hours. Invest 95-L in the Gulf of Mexico is forecast to continue moving WNW toward Texas, dumping a lot of rain over northern Mexico, Texas and Louisiana. Tropical Storm Isaac is moving west, expected to fall apart as it encounters shear in the Caribbean. Hurricane Helene will move north and downgrade to a tropical storm. Subtropical Storm Joyce will stay far out in the Atlantic. We will keep you posted on any development. Hurricane season ends November 31.
