After all the dire predictions of rain for the Southeast, today is relatively sunny and dry.  What happened to the predictions of heavy rain from the remains of TS Erika?

The radar shows the blob of rain that was formerly Erika spinning just off the west coast of Florida.  So far very little of that rain has moved onshore.  As long as it continues to sit and spin, it may remain relatively dry.  But when the pocket of air moves north, it is likely to bring rain to the region.  So enjoy the dry conditions while they last and keep watching the forecasts to see where the rain goes next.
