As we turn the page into the weekend, the big story will be Hurricane Isaias as it inches closer to the Florida coast line Saturday afternoon and evening. A few models want to indicate a brief brush along the Space Coast, but we will have to watch to see how close or if Isaias makes a landfall. But the latest track from the National Hurricane Center does project a landfall along the Carolinas with potential for storm surge, heavy rain and hurricane force winds.
Locally for us, we will be hot and dry for Saturday as we watch a cold front approach the region by Sunday. This cold front will be very weak and lose most of it’s moisture associated with it. The front will help steer the hurricane away from the Georgia coastline. A secondary cold front is forecasted to move into the southeast by middle of next week and stalling out. This frontal boundary would help increase rainfall at least through the end of next week.
Although, we are tracking several frontal systems that will move across Alabama and Georgia they won’t effect temperatures at all. We will remain hot with mid to low 90s. Maybe a few days we will see lower humidity, but for the most part we will stay summer-like.
