Despite the cool morning, we’re going to be in the low 90s again this afternoon. Many of us will stay dry, but a few isolated showers and storms can’t be ruled out this afternoon and evening. Rain chances will stay low tonight, but a few showers are possible ahead of a front. Lows will be in the low 70s.

This cold front will move in by Monday morning. We’ll still warm up into the 90s in the afternoon, but the humidity will gradually decrease. Tuesday and Wednesday will feel much more refreshing. Lows will be in the mid 60s, and highs will be in the mid 80s.

We’re closely watching Tropical Storm Ian in the Caribbean this weekend. It will move northwest near Cuba by Monday and Tuesday as a hurricane. It may become a major hurricane in the Southern Gulf. At this time, it looks like it could make landfall anywhere from the Florida Panhandle through the central part of the Florida Peninsula by the end of the week. For now, the worst impacts of Ian are expected to stay east of South Mississippi. However, we’re going to monitor Ian closely for any changes to its track.

There is another tropical wave in the Central Atlantic that has a low chance of development. It is not a threat to the Gulf. Gaston and the remnants of Hermine will stay out at sea.
