Cooler and Less Humid Today, Watching the TropicsAugust 14th, 2013 at 11:04 am by Jeff Edmondson WAVY under Weather
Well, we made it! The cold front has passed us by and we can finally have a break from this humid air. I admit, I am a fan of cooler weather. It looks like this cool airmass is here to stay for a few days.
Today we will see a wind from the North at 10-20 G25mph. That should die down tonight which could give some of us a chill with lows near 60 this evening. The record low for tonight is 55 degrees!
Temperatures will stay comfy tomorrow with highs near 78 in the afternoon.
Now, I wasn’t going to let you off that easy. There is a system worth watching in the Caribbean right now. The Hurricane Center has two areas of interest, the once near Cuba has a 50% chance of development and the one off of the west coast of Africa has a 60% chance of development.
In purple I put tracks for each storm. Storm 1 moving in to the USA will likely fade away and be a rain maker for either us or the central parts of the country. Storm 2 is something to watch, but it is expected to fade away once it runs in to unfavorable air. Regardless, the tropics are becoming more active. We will watch both of these areas of interest closely.
