Forecast: There are already some downpours moving through the area Saturday morning. There will likely be more throughout the afternoon with a few producing heavy rain and lighting. If you're heading to the Fried Chicken Festival have the rain gear handy. Temperatures will climb into the lower 90s for areas that don't see rain, but for areas that do see rain the highs will likely stay in the upper 80s. By this evening rain chances start to drop and tonight will be quite nice with lows in the upper 60s on the Northshore and mid to upper 70s on the Southshore. 

Sunday will be drier and warmer with highs in the lower 90s. This trend continues to start next week with mid to upper level ridging keeping the rain chances around 10% and the highs in the lower 90s.  

Tropics: Jerry weakened to a tropical storm overnight, but will still bring rough seas and some rain to the northern Lesser Antilles and parts of Puerto Rico. The storm is forecast to pass very close to Bermuda as a hurricane by Tuesday into Wednesday. 

Some good news, the tropical disturbance in the Caribbean missed its shot at becoming organized, so its development chances are down to 0%. It will still bring rain to Haiti and parts of Cuba. 

The other tropical wave, known as Invest 99, is east of the Lesser Antilles. It currently has a medium chance of development as it heads west. Regardless of development, the track of this system will bring rain to Puerto Rico by the beginning of next week. 

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. This storm will likely become Karen or Lorenzo.
