Periodic Showers Predicted for the Weekend

Now that Tropical Storm Emily no longer exists it won't be a weekend washout, but there may be periodic showers

    Keep your umbrella handy this weekend even though Tropical Storm Emily no longer exists.
    We don't anticipate a weekend washout with Emily since dry air is filtering into the system and should prevent widespread continuous rain for the local vicinity. So, there may be periodic showers but don't cancel any plans.
    The system may provide some much-needed moisture over the next couple of days, but rain and storm chances are no higher than a typical summer South Florida day. 
    Some of the moisture associated with Emily will move west northwest and into the local area over the weekend. But the system should get absorbed by a weakness in the high pressure that has been parked over the Sunshine State. 
    That trough or weakness in the ridge of high pressure will eventually allow the dissipating Emily to have no further influence on the three-county area.
    Temperatures for much of the weekend will hover in the low 90s for daytime highs and middle 70s for overnight lows through Sunday.  Seas could be rocky even for the vicinity as the remnant low passes over the Bahamas. So, boaters should keep that in mind as they take to the high seas.
