HOT & HUMID

We’ll continue our streak of above normal days – which stands at 6 days and counting. Our normal high is 89 and we’ll be in the mid 90s the next couple days, falling to the low 90s by this weekend. There are signs of a cold front – but it may be awhile before it arrives. For now, computer models are indicating sometime between September 27th-29th.

DRY STREAK

22 Days. That’s how long it’s been since our last measurable rain. Though that may seem like a long time, it only ties as the 178th longest dry streak. The longest? 88 days back in 1895. While we’re far from an all-time dry streak record, we’re actually atop the list of driest Septembers to date – with no rain officially…yet. We’ll have small rain chances over the next week, with the most likely days Thursday and Tuesday at 20%.

THE TROPICS

Jose remains far enough off the East Coast to avoid a landfall, but close enough to cause rain, wind and rip currents.

Maria remained a Cat. 5 making a trek toward the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico as a potentially catastrophic storm.

Another disturbance in the Atlantic has a low chance of development.

Meanwhile, in the Pacific, Otis and Norma are fizzling and another disturbance has potential for development.

The Atlantic Hurricane Season peaked September 10th and continues until November 30th. NOAA is predicting a slightly above average hurricane season with 14-19 named storms, 5-9 hurricanes and 2-5 major hurricanes. More info: http://bit.ly/cbsaustinwxhurricane http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/
