Higher rain chances today- still watching strong tropical wave!

We have a better chance for seeing more showers and thunderstorms in the area later this morning and into the afternoon today as a disturbance moves through. Weather Service has placed the chances at 70%. Highs today should only reach the lower 90s due to the expected cloud cover and rain. As the sun sets and we loose our afternoon heating we expect to clear overnight with lows in the lower to mid 70s. Now on to the tropics. We are still watching a strong tropical wave in the central Caribbean Sea as is slowly moves west northwest. The National Hurricane Center gives it a 40% chance of developing into an organized tropical system over the next few days. We will continue to monitor the system and bring you updates as often as needed. Rex
