Gorgeous weekend ahead

Our weather is being dominated by the dry air that continues to hover over the peninsula in the mid and upper levels of the atmosphere.  This dry air combined with a cold front to our south are keeping deep tropical moisture well to the south and keeping Southwest Florida nice and dry.  That cold front pushed through and is not stationary along the Florida Straits.  An area of low pressure has developed along the decaying boundary and is bringing drenching rains to portions of Miami-Dade county and the Florida Keys.  
 
For the weekend, our forecast is absolutely gorgeous.  Plenty of sunshine, daytime high temperatures in the mid to lower 80's and humidity levels very comfortable with dew points in the low 60's.  
 
Humidity returns to the forecast by midweek.  Until then, I hope you have the opportunity to get out and enjoy this Southwest Florida weather.

Tracking the Tropics-
 
A few tropical waves well into the Atlantic, but nothing of interest.  The National Hurricane Center is still watching the remnants of Tropical Depression number nine.  The low is near the Yucatan Peninsula near the borders of Belize & Guatemala.  The disorganized area of showers and thunderstorms it is producing is expected to move eastward across northern Belize early today and make its way into the northwestern Caribbean Sea late today.  At this time, there is a low chance (10%) of this system regenerating before it is absorbed by a cold front in the next few days.
