The main focus of the weather across the south is a tropical depression that has formed in the Gulf of Mexico. TD-9 could become a tropical storm later today. While it appears Florida will experience the brunt of the wind and rain from this system, the forecast trek could change over the coming days. We will closely be monitoring this system.
We begin our day with clear to partly cloudy skies.
Expect highs today to top out in the low to mid 90s this afternoon under mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies. We only have a slight chance of a brief heat-activated shower or two.
Tonight should be mostly clear...lows in the mid-70s...and light winds.
The extended forecast looks to be about the same as today...partly cloudy with highs in the mid-90s...along with a slight chance of an afternoon shower.
Rain chances made need to be increased later in the week, depending on what happens with the tropical system in the Gulf.
