Big Heat To Continue A Few More Days

Tim Miller Thursday September 12 morning forecast

A ridge of High pressure is starting to move to our East. The Good news…this will allow for a cold front to move into the state by Friday…The Bad news…not much cool air behind the front, however with the front in the area and abundant moisture in place, we’ll see a better chance of scattered showers and thunderstorm s Friday through the weekend with temperatures “cooling” down to Near 90

Keeping a close eye on an area of disturbed weather off the southern area of the Bahamas. NHC now give this Tropical Wave a 70% chance into developing into a named storm. Its projected path would take it across FL into the Gulf by early next week. As with all Tropical events, it’s something that could/will change over the next 36 hours.
