TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) – Good Wednesday morning! It’s another muggy start to the day with temperatures hovering in the low 70s and mostly clear skies. Our forecast for today and tomorrow will be a bit drier with only isolated driving rain and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Rain cover will remain insulated and most of us should stay dry, although developing storms could have heavy rain with frequent thunder and lightning. Highs this afternoon will rise around the mid 90’s. Forecast is flush, wash, repeat through weekend with daily pop up storms and summer heat when we peak mid 90s through weekend and next week.
The remnants of East Pacific Hurricane Agatha have a 70% chance of developing again once it advances into the southeastern Gulf of Mexico and northwestern Caribbean Sea in the next 5 days, according to the National Hurricane Center. If allowed to develop again, it will likely move northeast toward Cuba by mid/late week. The prognosis is still quite uncertain, but local effects are unlikely to be felt. Regardless of how it develops, it will result in a wet weekend in Central and South Florida. The first name on the Atlantic Hurricane Season list is Alex.
