A cool front coming in on Wednesday will bring us our next chance for rain and a bit cooler weather. I expect highs on Friday to be in the low 80s, certified meteorologist Rusty McCranie said.
At the beach, the rip current risk is high.
“Incoming long-period northeast swells will produce rough surf and a high risk of rip currents at area beaches today,” according to the National Weather Service. The highest risk will fall between noon and 6 p.m. due to the tidal cycle. It’s strongly advised not to enter the surf today.

ORLANDO, Fla. — EYE ON THE TROPICS

The tropics are still alive. Melissa has weakened over the northern Atlantic, its remnants will continue moving over water without affecting land.

A tropical disturbance over the Gulf of Honduras has a low chance of developing, less than 20 percent over the next 5 days after it enters the southwestern Gulf of Mexico.

There is another tropical wave well east of the Lesser Antilles, also with a low chance for developing into a tropical system. Weather conditions should become more favorable for this wave to develop after it gets closer to the Lesser Antilles.

Tropical Depression number 15 formed just off the Africa coast, east of the Cabo Verde Islands. It is forecast that this system will become better organized and become a Tropical Storm Nestor within the next 24 hours as it meanders slowly to the west. This system is forecast to stay over the far eastern Atlantic.
