The typical summer weather will continue for the start of the new work week as there is no change in the weather pattern.

Thus, Monday through Wednesday with begin with plenty of sunshine, along with hot and humid conditions, as highs will climb to near 90 with feel like temperatures pushing the mid to upper 90s.

Then, with the heating of the day, we will have about a 30-40% chance for scattered showers and a few thunderstorms.

A few storms could produce heavy downpours, with lots of thunder and lightning, but I'm not expecting any severe weather or flooding.

For the second half of the work week it does look like high pressure will build over the southeast dropping rain chances down to just 20% for a couple stray showers Thursday and Friday afternoon.

The bigger story for Thursday and Friday, along with the weekend, is that the August heat looks to be in full force with highs in the low to mid 90s and heat indices topping out between 102-107.

Although it will be hot it does look like we should get a relatively dry weekend with rain chances holding at 20-30%.

In the tropics things are improving with the wave in the Atlantic near the Lesser Antilles looking very disorganized on Sunday.

The National Hurricane Center has dropped its chances of development down to zero as the wave is expected to run into strong upper level wind shear, which will tear apart any storms that try to develop.

In the Pacific Tropical Depression Erick is rather elongated with a board area of circulation producing sustained winds of 35 mph.

Erick should continue to weaken and dissipate by late Monday evening.

Tropical Storm Flossie is barely holding on with 40 mph winds.

Flossie will eventually weaken to a tropical depression as it scoots to the north of the Hawaiian Islands late Monday into Tuesday.

Some of the islands could see heavy showers/storms and high seas as Flossie passes by them.

Finally, Gil has weakened back to a tropical depression with 30 mph winds and will continue to dissolve by Monday afternoon, if not sooner.
