Tropical development likely
(WALA) - A broad area of low pressure is over the northeast tip of the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. This system has a 90% (high) chance of redevelopment in the Gulf or northwestern Caribbean Sea between now and Friday, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Models show development of a lopsided, sheared system. There is still a good possibility this becomes Tropical Storm Alex.
The track appears to be headed for Cuba, the Florida Keys and or the lower Florida Peninsula. We expect little to no impacts here based on the current forecast.
We saw a few isolated thunderstorms this afternoon. Rain chances continue through about 11 p.m. this evening. We go back to a scattered thunderstorm chance on Friday with odds at 50%. Daytime highs will be a bit lower in the upper 80s Friday. Lows will be near 70 degrees.
It looks a little drier and hot for the upcoming weekend.
