First Alert Weather: Coastal Showers Night Sky Meteors

The cloudy weather we experienced most of the day today will still be with us tonight but the good news is the rain chances are low for tonight with only widely scattered showers possible.  We will see some breaks in the clouds and that will give us the opportunity to get a glimpse of the Perseid Meteor Showers that may be visible in the sky starting tonight.  The meteor showers will peak on August 12 and August 13 but because of some clouds breaking apart, you might be able to catch the sight of some meteor showers!

In the meantime, the coastal showers will resume on Sunday morning and stick around through the early afternoon.  After that, winds will push those showers over to the east coast of Florida and we will start to see an easing of the rain chances tomorrow afternoon.

Drier air will be moving in from the Atlantic and that will help to set up for a drier week with few chances of rain beginning Tuesday through the following weekend.  We pay the price with high temperatures back up in the 90's with more sunshine around.

In the tropics, the area of disturbed weather in the Central Atlantic now has a 10% chance of forming as it moves to the West.  Strong winds are helping to shear it apart and prevent it from developing at this time.

Boaters will see some isolated morning Thunderstorms with mostly cloudy skies the rest of the day.  Seas 1-2 feet with a light chop on the Bay and Inland waters.  The Gulf Water temperature is 87 degrees.  Red Tide continues to plague area beaches.
