Wet at times today, especially this morning and afternoon before the wettest weather exits northeastward.
WHAT is causing the rain? A disturbance at mid-levels of the atmosphere.
IS IT RELATED TO ERIKA? No, the remnants of Erika are separate and impacting Florida.
CHANCE FOR RAIN THROUGH EARLY PM IS GREATEST...
- South of I-20 may not see as much rain as areas to the north where all of the deep moisture is located.
DISTURBANCE EXITS TOMORROW = LOWER RAIN CHANCES
ERRATIC ERIKA - The forecast track continues to fluctuate and vary between models. Yesterday, it looked wetter and today it looks like Erika may have little impact on our weather. I adjusted the rain chance forecast between the Wednesday-Friday time frame slightly. IF remnants of Erika stays east of Alabama then rain chances will be much lower and temperatures will be on the toasty side.
FLORIDA- Will see the brunt from the remnants with potential flooding from days of heavy rainfall.
LABOR DAY WEEKEND - Is looking wetter and wetter and will depend on the future of an upper level low. As of now, both long range models show the chance for rain increasing on Friday and lingering through Labor Day. We'll continue to monitor data trends and update you!
Have a good rest of the weekend,
