Weekend Outlook: A few downpours are moving through the area this evening, but they will become more isolated as we head into tonight before most dry out. Saturday morning you might notice it feels cooler in the morning, especially north of the lake. South of the lake it will still be slightly warmer, but overall the morning will be nice. By Saturday afternoon a few t-storms could move through, so make sure you're keeping an eye on the sky if you're heading out or going to the Fried Chicken Festival. 

By Sunday we begin to dry out and the rain chances drop again as we head into next week. The first day of Fall on Monday will be hot and humid with mostly sunny skies. This pattern continues through next week with little change in the forecast. 

Tropics: Hurricane Jerry continues to weaken thanks to stronger wind shear as it moves west northwest. It is now a Category 1 hurricane. The storm is forecast to remain a weak hurricane as it heads just north of the Lesser Antilles and just north of Puerto Rico by this weekend. It will likely still bring heavy rain, gusty winds and rough seas to these islands.

There are also three other disturbances we're keeping an eye on. The first is a tropical wave in the Caribbean that is producing extensive t-storms, but it fighting a lot of wind shear. It currently has a low chance of development as it drifts west northwest. 

The other tropical wave, known as Invest 99, is east of the Lesser Antilles. It currently has a low medium chance of development as it heads west. We'll keep an eye on it long term. It's forecast could be rather tricky thanks to Jerry. 

A tropical wave coming off the coast of Africa has a high chance of development by next week. It will have to be monitored long term, but it's too soon to know exactly how this system will evolve. Current models send it out to sea.
