Humid weather to persist-but with better shower chances !

That very strong ridge of high pressure that kept us very hot and mainly dry for the past few days is slowly weakening and will allow for much better shower and thunderstorm chances for us beginning Friday and lasting into the weekend. Highs will generally stay in the lower 90s and lows in the mid 70s through that time period. Chance for rain is 60% for both Friday and Saturday and 50% on Sunday. The showers will mainly form in the afternoon and early evening although a few earlier in the day showers can't be ruled out. The tropics are now beginning to heat up !!!!!! A tropical wave currently in the far eastern Atlantic shows some promise of becoming better organized over the next few days and will be monitored for development. I truly think this is the beginning of what will become a very active season. STAT TUNED !!! Rex
