Drop in the humidity this week... Watching Hurricane Dorian

Taylor's 5 PM Wednesday First Alert Forecast

A cold front is moving through this evening. While we can’t rule out a few showers this evening, most of us will be dry. We’ll have a drop in the humidity by Thursday morning with lows in the low 70s.

After the front passes, we’ll be much drier on Thursday and Friday. We can expect a lot of sunshine for both days. High temps will be in the low 90s, but the humidity will be lower. Morning lows by Friday could drop into the upper 60s and low 70s. However, the humidity will be back this weekend. A few showers and storms will be possible on Saturday and Sunday. Highs will be in the upper 80s and low 90s.

We are closely watching Hurricane Dorian. Strong winds and heavy rain are lashing the eastern part of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Now that it won’t have as much interaction with land, it will be able to strengthen more easily as it moves north. The path takes it just north of the Bahamas over the weekend. It is forecast to become a major, category three, hurricane as it nears Florida’s east coast. The Southeast will need to pay close attention to Dorian’s path. However, there is still plenty of uncertainty with its track by the weekend and into next week. It’s still too early to know if it will impact the Gulf Coast. Erin has been downgraded to a tropical depression. It is not expected to impact the U.S.
