PM Update: Mild, Mostly Dry and Maybe a Shower
Partly sunny Friday, chance of late-day showers/storms
Though we have largely managed to escape rain so far today, a few showers are popping up this afternoon, but many spots should remain dry. Otherwise, we cooled it down a little more from yesterday as partly-to-mostly cloudy skies filter the sunshine a bit and a north wind knocks humidity down a tad. Highs are now reaching the mid-80s most spots and temperatures will remain mild though fairly pleasant for evening activities like going to some pre-season football.
Through Tonight: After the slight risk of a shower or thundershower through evening, we'll see partly cloudy skies overnight. Sunset temperatures near or just below 80 settle to lows in the mid-60s to near 70. Some fog may form prior to sunrise as winds go light.
Tomorrow (Friday): With more sunshine, temperatures move up a bit, so mid-to-upper 80s should do it. As recently, cannot rule out a few afternoon or evening storms but they should be scattered at most.
Tropics: Once-Hurricane Felicia hit parts of Hawaii through yesterday as remnants of a tropical depression. Portions of Maui and Oahu -- actually in drought or near-drought conditions -- got dealt a substantial rainfall for August. Reports indicate that Felicia was "beneficial" for the islands affected. Though Hawaii does not often get hit with tropical systems, it is more common in El Nino years, and another is now pointed their way. In the Atlantic, TD2 continues to struggle while a disturbance to its east picks up steam.
