The weather pattern has changed which will make for a less stormy week (not dry but not as wet!).  Persistent onshore east to southeast winds will result in the following:
-- morning showers near the coast & at the beaches
-- showers, isolated storms near the I-95 corridor around noon
-- scattered afternoon showers & storms west of I-95
-- a somewhat elevated rip current risk at area beaches
-- temps. moderated slightly by the onshore flow with highs in the upper 80s at the beches (but only dropping to around 80 @ night)...low to mid 90s for highs inland.
Rainfall amounts since last Wed. have ranged from 1-2" at the beaches to 3-5" near I-95 to 6"+ for some areas west of I-95, especially over parts of SE Ga. Radar imagery below couretesy S. Fl. Water Management District.

In the tropics...."Erin" has dissipated as expected & there are no areas of concern at the moment.  It would seem the Atlantic Basin will stay mostly quiet until the last few days of Aug. &/or early Sept.  Still plenty of time for thigs to become active.

Moore, Ok. kids went back to school late last week for the first time since the devastating EF-5 tornado in May.  Click ** here ** for the story.
