Isolated storms and less heat coming up

Scattered showers, storms Saturday


Afternoon storms are developing and will become widely scattered around the St. Johns river while heading slowly westward. After 5 pm most areas east of I-95 will be drier. Rain chances drop after 8 pm.

Thunderstorms will take a pause providing less cloud cover this evening when you may spot the ISS at 9:11 in the southwest sky.

Look for a star-like steady light moving across the sky from SW to NE for 6 minutes.

Drier air and more easterly flow keeps rain chances under 20% next couple days before tropical moisture increases showers Saturday.

We also get a heat break with highs maxing out around 90°.

Thursday: Warm with patchy fog. Morning lows in the 70s inland and along our beaches. Afternoon highs in the lower 90s inland, upper 80s to low 90s along our sandy shores. Isolated showers and thunderstorms will develop during the afternoon and linger late, 10-20 percent inland.

Looking ahead: Tropics will remain quiet for the next 5 days. Near seasonal temperatures return Thursday and continue through the weekend with increasing chances for showers, storms.
