WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Tropical moisture is trapped with no place to go so we expect rounds of showers and storms mainly in the afternoon hours the next several days and this will help put a dent in the dry conditions that have impacted eastern areas all summer.

In the tropics, Fiona is bringing hurricane conditions to Puerto Rico, and tomorrow the eastern Dominican Republic, then head in the direction of the Turks & Caicos and the southeastern Bahamas by Tuesday.

Fiona is not expected to directly impact the mainland U.S. although swells will arrive here locally by midweek and a significant punch of drier, less humid air is likely to move in by the end of the week.

Everything else is quiet in the tropics.
