Hot and humid Hump Day, Richard is tracking Fred

Watching Tropical Storm Fred


A few isolated showers are rinding the sea breeze and moving in and along our coastal counties. Partly cloudy as high pressure to our north continues the onshore flow from the Atlantic with the sea breeze moving well inland through the day.

Heat and the sea breeze will bring the chance for showers and storms mainly inland. The chance will focus over eastern counties early in the afternoons, then further inland later in the day.

Getting ready for Tropical Storm Fred. Late Saturday through Monday’s forecast will be driven by the strength and track of Tropical Storm Fred. On its current NHC track the main impact for local forecast area will be added rainfall potential. Showers and storms are likely with the potential for heavy rainfall. With the ground saturated in many areas, and some rivers already in flood, additional flooding anticipated.
