After a brief reprieve from the rain and humidity, it will all return again today as a stalled front begins to lift north. This feature will be the focus of ample moisture through the weekend, fueling numerous showers and storms, especially south of Interstate 4. Mostly cloudy skies will be above throughout the day, limiting highs to the mid- to upper 80s. Occasional rain will develop inland and be locally heavy at times. A few showers may linger into the overnight hours as well. Lows will fall to the low 70s inland and mid-70s at the coast.
Saturday will be another soggy day for southern and eastern sections of Central Florida as a wave of low pressure develops along the stalled boundary to our southeast. This will be the focus of more rain and heavy downpours. There will be slightly drier air edging into the northwestern part of Central Florida, limiting rain chances for those northwest of Interstate 4 on Saturday and Sunday.
Highs throughout the weekend will run in the mid- to upper 80s due to increased cloud cover and rain. These readings will be slightly below the seasonal average of 89 degrees during our final days of summer. The cooler air will arrive in a timely fashion with the approach of fall. The Autumnal Equinox will mark the official start of the new season at 10:29 p.m. Monday.
In the tropics, Edouard is weakening as it travels over cooler water of the North Atlantic. The system will curve east and eventually southeast toward the Azores as it becomes a remnant area of low pressure. One other feature showing minimal signs of development is a wave of low pressure just leaving the west coast of Africa, which has been classified as Invest 95. There is a low possibility for formation as it shifts south of the Cape Verde Islands.
