Saturday will look a lot like the last two days with sunshine early and the heat quickly moving in. Scattered thunderstorms will move in by midday for many of us. Most of the afternoon and evening will contain a mixture of partly cloudy skies, and also scattered thunderstorms with heavy rainfall, lightning, and some gusty winds likely. Look for a high of 90 degrees and SW winds a little stronger around 10-20mph with a few stronger gusts.
This weak Low in the Gulf (actually a piece of the remnants of "Isaac") looks to move over just south of the I-10 Corridor Saturday overnight through most of the day Sunday. Then it heads into the Atlantic late Sunday evening after passing over Jacksonville.
This will mean scattered showers and storms (heavier closer to the Low) are likely for Sunday. For now this far out, and the way the Models are reading, it does not look to be much more than that. The NHC is going with a 20% chance of Tropical development over the next 48 hours.
Since we are heading into a weekend, I will still keep an eye on this system so there are no surprises. For you, and planning your weekend, unless something drastic changes, I would not plan for much more than this being a rain maker, with some gusty (but not dangerous) winds, and if it continues to look so weak, some of us may even get much rain from this system so stay tuned!
