WMBF FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Drier today. Still tracking Erika

Break from Downpours...Uncertainties with Erika

Slightly drier air moving in will cut down on storm chances the next few days. All the while, all eyes will remain on Erika.

Slightly drier air is moving into the area today which will result in more sunshine and lower chances for rain. Highs will be very comfortable this afternoon reaching into the mid 80s on the coast and upper 80s inland.

The same kind on weather pattern can be expected as we continue through the weekend and into early next week with the threat for a few afternoon storms working their way into the area. With more sunshine, highs will gradually creep up but staying relatively normal through the week.

While our local weather will remain quiet through the weekend, we'll have to closely watch the path and intensity of Tropical Storm Erika. It's still way too early for specific forecasts, but some impacts are possible in our area by the middle of next week.
