Hurricane Gert strengthens while 2 new tropical Atlantic systems are monitored

As of mid-afternoon these have been some of the heat indices.

Although Storm Gert is not expected to make landfall in the United States, the NHC is warning of "life-threatening surf and rip currents" along coastal areas. "Rip currents will be strongest several hours either side of low tide". Some patchy areas of fog and low clouds may develop. Be careful in the heat the rest of the day! The Florida Public Radio Emergency Network encourages all Floridians to finish their seasonal preparations this week while the weather is calm. Highs will be in the lower 90s, with heat indices in the triple digits. The storm has made its recurve and is head back out to sea. Forecast data suggests development, if it were to occur, would be slow and most likely toward the end of the week. This frontal passage may not completely eliminate the threat for an isolated shower or thunderstorm for the rest of the day, but what it will do is allow skies to clear for some sunshine.

Moisture levels will remain high. If this forecast holds, it will mean very good viewing for the solar eclipse! This will help to keep rain chances in the typical summertime range Thursday and Friday. Gert will have no major impact on our area.

It is that time of the year again when tropical waves begin lining up in the eastern Atlantic just off the coast of Africa.

"The weekend brings some showers in the north and west with fewer east and south". Skies have been partly to mostly cloudy across much of CT. I was anxious about high clouds for Monday and Tuesday, and the high clouds certainly blocked out the sun by then end of yesterday.

The average high on this date is 92.

The cool air will arrive for Wednesday night as the high builds in overhead.
