Scorching Temperatures for Sunday, Dorian Batters Nova Scotia

Video Forecast

Get ready for more heat and humidity Sunday as high pressure continues to keep us dry. A stray shower or storm may pop up Sunday evening, but most of us will stay dry. A heat advisory may be issued tomorrow as the feels like temperatures reach 106°+ again.

Sunday: A stray shower or storm. Hot. Heat index 106°+. High: 97°

Sunday night: Mild and muggy. Low: 76°

Monday: Spotty showers and storms. Hot. High: 95°

Monday will see the best chance of rain as a weak upper level low moves onshore in Texas. Rain chances remain spotty at best through the week as high pressure centered to our east keeps us mostly dry. Temperatures will stay on the hot side, in the mid-to-upper 90s. Dorian continues to move northward, but has transitioned to a post-tropical cyclone, meaning it has lost its tropical characteristics. This doesn’t mean it’s any weaker, in fact, Dorian’s winds have strengthened to category 2 strength. This is causing a lot of damage in Nova Scotia, and especially in Halifax. Dorian will continue north towards Greenland where it will begin to weaken. Gabrielle continues to move northward into open Atlantic waters as a tropical storm. it is expected to gain some strength, but it will not affect any land areas. A wave that moved off the coast of Africa last week has a medium chance of development in 5 days. Most models take this into the Caribbean, but there is a big spread on whether or not it will develop. For now, it will just be something we watch as it poses no threat to any land areas for the time being.
