7:00 AM | *Onshore flow continues through the weekend*

Paul Dorian

High pressure ridging extends from southeastern Canada to the Southeast US and will help to continue a stiff and persistent onshore flow of air around here right through the weekend. The E-NE winds will act to put a cap on afternoon highs with most places holding in the low-to-middle 80’s over the next few days. The tropical scene remains active with one hurricane (Jerry) and multiple other waves to monitor in coming days.

7:00 AM | *Stiff onshore flow next few days which will keep a lid on high temperatures*

Paul Dorian

High pressure ridging extends from the NE US to the Mid-Atlantic and will help to generate a stiff and persistent onshore flow of air across central Florida. The E-NE winds will act to put a cap on afternoon highs with most places holding in the low-to-middle 80’s over the next few days. The tropical scene remains very active with multiple systems to monitor across the Atlantic Basin in coming days.

7:00 AM | *Hurricane Humberto now a "major" and keeps pulling away from the east coast...Tropical Storm Jerry has formed in the central Atlantic*

Paul Dorian

High pressure along the eastern seaboard will strengthen over the next couple of days and the result here will be a stiffening of onshore flow for the remainder of the week. The stiff E-NE winds will keep a cap on temperatures with temperatures generally confined to the middle 80’s for afternoon highs. Elsewhere, tropical depression “Imelda” will bring torrential rain to the southeastern part of Texas over the next couple of days and a new tropical storm (“Jerry”) has formed in the central Atlantic. Hurricane Humberto has strengthened into “major” hurricane status (category 3) and will hit the island of Bermuda later tonight with hurricane force winds and heavy rainfall. The Atlantic Basin tropical season will likely remain active through September and into the month of October.

7:00 AM | *Hurricane Humberto continues to slowly pull away from the coast...windy conditions here for the second half of the week*

Paul Dorian

Hurricane Humberto continues to push slowly away from the coast and slightly drier air will push into east-central Florida allowing for generally rain-free conditions in the area. High pressure along the eastern seaboard will strengthen over the next couple of days and the result here will be a stiffening of onshore flow for the second half of the week. The stiff E-NE winds later in the week will keep a cap on temperatures with temperatures generally confined to the middle 80’s for afternoon highs.

7:00 AM | *Humberto now a hurricane to slowly push away from the east coast...could reach "major" hurricane status*

Paul Dorian

The tropical system located over the Bahamas late last week has reached hurricane status (named Humberto) and it is likely to push slowly away from the US east coast in coming days. Isolated showers on the periphery of Hurricane Humberto will move south and southeast along coastal sections during the morning and mid-day hours. Another tropical system in the Atlantic is moving on a NW track and this should bring it to the northeast of the Caribbean Sea in several days with some intensification quite likely.

11:55 AM (Friday) | *Another slow moving tropical system to impact the Bahamas and Florida*

Paul Dorian

Here we go again…another slow moving tropical system will impact the Bahamas and Florida over the next couple of days in what is a very active looking tropical scene.  There are numerous systems of interest right now across the Atlantic Basin which is not too unusual given the time of year which is the climatological peak period of the tropical season.  In addition to the system over the Bahamas, there is a batch of showers and thunderstorms over the eastern Gulf of Mexico that may organize in coming days and two other disturbances in the eastern Atlantic.  Furthermore, multiple systems over the continent of Africa – the breeding grounds for the Atlantic Basin – assure us that it’ll remain active as we progress through the month of September.

7:00 AM | ***An active tropical scene poses a threat (or two) to Florida***

Paul Dorian

The Atlantic Basin tropical scene remains quite active today with multiple systems to monitor. One system over the Bahamas this morning is likely to strengthen as it heads slowly towards Florida over the next couple of days and a batch of showers and thunderstorms over the eastern Gulf of Mexico may organize as it moves westward. The tropical wave near the Bahamas will generate locally heavy rainfall for Florida and gusty winds as it heads in our direction. In addition, two tropical waves now exist in the eastern Atlantic Ocean and the front running system will likely push into the eastern Caribbean Sea in several days and will have to be closely watched.

One final note, this happens to be Friday the 13th and only about 1% of full moons fall on a Friday the 13th. This one is even rarer as it is occurring near apogee, the farthest point in the moon's orbit. This hasn't happened since 1832 and won't happen again for more than 500 years.

7:00 AM | **Tropical wave to produce some locally heavy rain and gusty winds on its way to the Gulf of Mexico*

Paul Dorian

A large ridge of high pressure will interact with an approaching tropical wave to produce lots of moisture in the area along with a persistent E-NE flow of air that will continue through the upcoming weekend. This flow will keep high temperatures somewhat limited in coming days to the mid or upper 80’s across the region and will likely generate rip currents at the beaches. In addition, as the tropical disturbance slowly work its way across the Florida Straits and southern Florida over the next few days on its way to the Gulf of Mexico there will be an enhanced threat of showers and thunderstorms. Another tropical disturbance is located in the eastern Atlantic and it may become a threat for the Bahamas and Florida in about a week to ten days or so.

7:00 AM | *Gulf of Mexico may feature a tropical system by the end of the weekend and another tropical wave has to be watched for a possible encounter ten days or so from now*

Paul Dorian

A large ridge of high pressure extending from Bermuda to the Appalachians will keep a persistent E-NE flow of air in central Florida for the remainder of the week. This flow will keep high temperatures somewhat limited in coming days to the middle 80’s in general across the region. On the tropical scene, there are three different waves lined up in the Atlantic right now as we arrive at the climatological peak of the tropical season. The first system should head to the Gulf of Mexico by late this weekend and will have to be monitored, the second wave has little chance of survival, and the third wave may very well become an important issue for the SE US/Gulf of Mexico region in about ten days or so...stay tuned.

7:00 AM | *Onshore flow kicks in later in the week*

Paul Dorian

A subtropical ridge of high pressure will lift north early this week and combine with high pressure off the NE US coastline providing us with relatively calm weather as we begin the new work week. The overall flow of air will begin from a southerly direction this week and boost temperatures in the region, but and onshore flow will form later in the week and highs will likely be confined to the mid-to-upper 80’s.
