** Summary: Nice End to the Weekend. Tropical systems are having a hard time developing**
Today: Partly Cloudy with a stray shower possible. Highs in the upper 80s. Heat IX: Mid 90s. Wind: Variable 5-10mph.
Tonight: Clear and mild. Lows in the Mid 70s. Wind: SE 5-10mph.

High pressure has influence over our local weather for the next couple of days. There is a stalled front across North Carolina, but it’ll wash-out by the afternoon. Rain will be hard to find today, but a stray shower isn’t ruled out for Hampton Roads (chance only around 10%). North Carolina will have a 20% chance for a showers due to the stalled front across the region. Otherwise, expect quiet weather for most areas thru Tuesday. The weather looks to cooperate for the viewing of the Solar Eclipse on Monday. By Wednesday, you’ll need to carry the umbrella as a cold front moves into our area. It’ll bring scattered showers and storms. The front will cross Hampton Roads and stall across NC on Thursday; so, few showers will remain possible for the Tidewater because of this. The front moves further south by Friday as High pressure takes control. So, expect cooler weather in the wake of the front with highs hovering around 80 degrees as we wrap up the workweek and jump into the weekend.
Tropics: Dry air and some wind shear is doing a number on the tropical systems in the Atlantic (and no one is complaining). What was Tropical Storm Harvey was degenerated down to a tropical wave. There is a small chance for it to regenerate by Tuesday as it moves toward the Yucatan Peninsula. Invest 92L and the tropical wave behind that have low chances to development the next few days…less than 30%.
