Tracking the tropics:

The tropics are coming alive! We have Fiona and Gaston. And there are three other tropical waves that could get names. The disturbance moving toward the Caribbean is the one we need to watch as it develops over the next few days.

The tropics remain very busy!

After moving into the Caribbean the question is does it move into the Gulf of Mexico? Here are two long range model solutions. One has a hurricane in the in the Gulf of Mexico, the other in the Atlantic east of Florida. Make sure you have our Hurricane Tracker App for updates on this system and others that form in the tropics.

The American and European models take the storm generally across the eastern Gulf

10-day Forecast:

The official start of Fall is Thursday but it will feel like summer with temperatures climbing to the upper-90s Thursday and Friday. We’ll be challenging record highs through Saturday. Temperatures lower next week.

Blazing heat through the end of the week
