Extra moisture from low pressure to our south moved in and coverage of showers and storms was a little more widespread.
Moisture will continue to stream in this weekend, keeping higher rain chances around. Not a complete washout, but higher than the past few days.
Mostly cloudy skies are in the forecast through the overnight hours.

Most of the rain will end early, but a coastal shower will be possible heading into Saturday morning. Temperatures will fall into the mid-70s.
Easterly wind will increase heading into Saturday afternoon and start to push a few showers and storms toward the Gulf Coast. With abundant moisture, the chance is higher that you’ll see rain, but it will not be a complete washout.
A similar forecast is in store for Sunday and early next work week as plenty of moisture sticks around.
Beach and Surf Conditions
Watch for a few storms if heading to the beach or out on the boat. Winds will also be a little breezier, creating a higher chop on the water and elevating our rip current threat.
No big changes with the tropical wave off the coast of south Florida. It remains a weak area of low pressure that is expected to be over land tonight, which will prevent strengthening. As it moves north-northeast over the water this weekend, a tropical depression is likely to form.
Regardless, minimal impacts will be felt in Central Florida. Only a slight afternoon breeze, mainly along the east coast, is expected, along with a higher chance for showers and storms.
Another area of low pressure is in the south central Atlantic and now also has a high potential to become tropical this weekend or early next week as it moves toward the Lesser Antilles.
Not a big concern at this time as models forecast move it into the Caribbean and weaken it. Something to continue to monitor, however.
Both of these are expected to be tropical depressions at first, but if they become stronger, the next names on the list are Dorian and Erin.
The peak of Atlantic hurricane season is September 10. The season ends November 30.
