Light to moderate rain this week; watch for tropical development

The latest 7-day QPF map shows that most parts of the region are likely to experience less than an inch of rain this week, with the most likely times midweek but scattered chances throughout the period. The wildcard is Investigation 90, an area of potential tropical development now located east of Florida that has a 60 percent chance of developing into a named storm in the next five days. The models generally suggest a track westward. It would most likely move over Florida, but a few models put it into Georgia or South Carolina instead. Hard to get a good sense of where weak systems like this one will go, but the primary impact will be rain. Interests along the East Coast should keep an eye out. Temperatures are expected to be a bit warmer than previous weeks, but still nothing unusual. Overall the tropics are still remaining quiet, but with most of the season still to come, that will likely change by mid-August.
