Saturday, scattered passing showers and thunderstorms. It will be a little breezier with Hurricane Ida moving into the Gulf of Mexico. Highs near 90.

Sunday, scattered showers/storms again but with a lighter wind flow. So showers and storms starting close to the coast on the seabreeze, then slowly pushing inland through the day.

Early next week, some drier air and a little Saharan dust moves back in so rain chances will be lower.

The flow turns offshore mid-week which brings showers and storms to the east coast of florida late afternoon and evening with sunny/hot conditions prior to the late day rain.

Along with Hurricane Ida, there are three other disturbances in the tropics. Two have a good chance to develop but look to stay well offshore and not bother any land.

A new one will come off the African coastline next week and has a chance to develop in about five to seven days. It is still too early to tell what that one will do.
