    By: Arielle Nixon

    Updated:

    This morning will be warm and muggy with temperatures in the 70s. The afternoon will be mostly to partly sunny and hot, but not as extreme as past days thanks to a wind off the Atlantic. Temperatures will climb into the upper 80s to about 90 degrees. A few isolated midday and afternoon inland showers will develop, but most of the day will be dry.

     

    The weekend will be mostly sunny and seasonal with a few afternoon storms and temperatures in the upper 80s.

     

     

    TRACKING THE TROPICS:

    The First Alert Weather Team is monitoring an area of low pressure over the south-central Atlantic. There is some potential for the system to become more organized today, but long term development does not appear likely as upper level wind shear will increase Friday.  An area of low pressure is expected to develop over the Central Atlantic Friday into the weekend. There is some potential for tropical or subtropical development of this system over the open Atlantic over the weekend and early next week.
