We’ve been paying MUCH attention to the southwest Caribbean these last few days. There is a wave down there trying to get its act together. This morning the Hurricane Center downgraded the chances of it developing to 20%…they were at 40% yesterday. The wave looks like shear is tearing it apart. It’s so weak that the recon flight for today has been canceled.







The models have come a little closer to agreement.  It looks likely that the moisture from this thing will surge northward and to the east of Florida.

Some of that moisture should help us out with increased rain chances for the weekend! I know that no one wants a washout for the weekend. But at this point we need more rain SO very badly that I think we’ll take it anytime we can get it.

Speaking of rain, rain chance today will still be about 20% across Central Florida. Most of that would be well inland. Yesterday we had some strong/severe storms in Marion and Sumter counties. Todays pattern should be similar. Good luck getting in on the showers.

High for today will be right at 93 degrees in Orlando. The normal for this time of year is 90. It’s June…it would be weird if it were any cooler.

I’m going for bicycle ride now. It’s way to hot for a run. I’ll see you at 6, 7, and 11 tonight on Local 6.
