First Alert Summary
Monday we have a sea breeze kicking in by the afternoon, that increases our chances of showers and storms to 30%, mainly south and east of I-20. High temperatures are in the upper 80s with partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies.
Tuesday and Wednesday we’re watching a cold front approach from the northwest. The front brings some rain to the mountains, but we will remain mainly dry. Just a 20% chance of some afternoon storms for each day.
Thursday we have drier air coming in behind the front. That will give us plenty of sunshine and highs near 90.

In the Central Atlantic we have Tropical Wave Invest 92L, it has a 10% chance of development in the next 5 days, the models don’t have a good handle on it right now, but most take it to the north.
here’s also another Tropical Wave 91L that has a 70% chance of development in the next 5 days, and a 50% chance in the next 2 days.

It is expected to strengthen to at least Tropical Depression status by late this week.
