Nice nights-tropics heating up fast !
High pressure currently over the deep south is providing us with hot and dry days but nice and less humid nights. Little if any rain is in the forecast for at least the next two days but by the weekend we will see a gradual increase in our afternoon rain chances. As far as the tropics are concerned, hurricane Danielle remains well out in the far Atlantic and will pose no threat to the U.S. mainland. Further to the south of Danielle is another tropical wave that appears to be organizing into what will eventually become "Earl" but it to is forecast to take a similar path as Danielle and should pose little threat to the states. Another disturbance is forecast to move off the African coast during the next few days and may take a more westerly track which could possibly pose a threat to the states in about a week and a half. There is also another area of disturbed weather located in the western gulf that we will monitor for some development over the next few days. Rex
