Forecast Last Updated at Friday, August 26, 2016 at 6:18PM

Warm; Humid; Repeat

Temperatures and humidity are back to the levels we have become so familiar with this summer. There's no retreat for at least the next six days. Friday night will be dry and Saturday afternoon convection looks isolated at best. The broken record keeps spinning next week. Prospects for a significant tropical storm next week in the Southeast have diminished--see the Discussion Section of the forecast for more information.

Forecast Discussion

The warm, muggies are back in full force. That's been the summer storyline. There's no relief at least through the middle of next week. Even the front that we thought would get close Saturday never makes it south of central Virginia. Dry weather abounds; however, each afternoon has somewhere between "barely worth mentioning" and isolated thundershowers.

Maybe (and ONLY maybe), we can get a front through from the north Thursday.

In the tropics... Gaston is a tropical storm far out in the Atlantic, not a threat to any land mass. We have been focused on a disturbance now moving NW through the Bahamas. It will be near South Florida late Saturday and Sunday. Models differ on two possibilities-- 1) a weakened tropical wave reaching the Gulf of Mexico or 2) a tropical storm developing over Florida and it eventually brushing the Southeast Atlantic Coast. No one knows at this point. It may become a named storm (Hermine); however, the chances for it impacting our weather in the foreseeable future appear small.
