Currently in the tropics, we have three weeks remaining in hurricane season. However, I am pleased to report that there is no activity in the peninsula, Gulf, Caribbean, or Atlantic. Outside, there are a few clouds mixed with the sun, as seen from the Jupiter Inlet and the lighthouse.
The sea may be a bit rough today, with waves ranging from 2 to 4 feet, but there are no advisories in effect. Temperatures are slightly warmer than yesterday, with 81 degrees in Vero, 84 degrees in the Palm Beaches, and 83 degrees in South County.
The wind is coming from the northeast at around 10 to 15 miles per hour, but it will transition to a southeasterly flow over the next few days. This change in wind direction may bring a chance of showers over the weekend.
However, today will mainly be dry with a few fair-weather clouds due to strong high pressure and a lack of moisture in the air. The moisture is located south of Cuba and closer to the southern Bahamas. This dry air will likely remain in place for the next two to three days.
If you are attending the Stuart Air Show on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, expect temperatures in the mid-80s, which is about 5 degrees above average for this time of year. There may be isolated showers, but overall, rainfall will be limited. Viper cast indicates a possibility of a few spotty showers in our far western zones today, but most areas will experience a dry afternoon with highs in the mid-80s.
Tonight, temperatures will drop to around 71 degrees in the Palm Beaches and Treasure Coast and in the 60s across the lake. If you plan on boating, expect slightly rough conditions with a northeasterly wind up to 15 knots and seas ranging from 2 to 4 feet.
Inland waters will have a moderate chop. High tide is at 3:41 pm this afternoon.
Looking ahead, temperatures will remain in the mid-80s for the next few days, with minimal rainfall apart from a few scattered showers..
