Dominic Brown’s Live VIPIR Forecast

***There is a MODERATE risk of rip currents at the beach today.***

A few clouds today, then a little rain for the work week….As we move through this Sunday, expect warm conditions. High temperatures will be in the mid 80s.  We’ll likely see a good deal of clouds move across the sun through the afternoon, but for most of the day, we will be dry. A few late night isolated showers and storms are possible. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies tonight with lows in the lower 70s.

On Monday, a few showers and storms could dampen part of your day as a weak disturbance moves through the area, but we’re not expecting a washout. Highs will be in the upper 80s and lower 90s. Tuesday brings a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the upper 80s. Then, later in the week, all eyes will be on the remnant moisture of Erika. We could see some of that moisture move into our area, but for now, the chance of Erika redeveloping is low. We’ll keep an eye on it for you from the Live VIPIR Forecast.


Today: Partly Sunny and Warm.  High temperatures in the mid and upper 80s. Winds: S 5-10 mph.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Isolated Shower/Storm Late (20%). Low temperatures in the low 70s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow: Partly Sunny. Isolated Showers/Storms (20-30%). High temperatures in the upper 80s and lower 90s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.
