Summer doing the Buck Smile & Tropical Storm Erika's new track
I have been working evenings the last couple days and it was very nice to be there when Summer wakes up in the morning. She is always super playful so we worked on her #BuckSmile this morning. She is getting REALLY good at it! Her awareness keeps growing day by day.
So Erika has been a really fun storm to watch. It could really affect a LOT of people, especially their Labor Day plans. The storm is slowly weakening now thanks to part of the storm going inland over Haiti and the Dominican Republic. As it heads toward Cuba the latest forecast has it weakening to a tropical depression. Then strengthen a little more to a tropical storm near the Florida Keys, then move up the Western Coast of Florida. The track is not set in stone and it has shifted a lot in the last 24 hours so stay tuned. There is always leeway in the cone forecast, but that's the fun part of tropical storms. Either way, it will likely move north and affect part of the Carolinas for some of Labor Day weekend.
Heat and humidity returning, so summer is not giving up just yet. Highs in the mid 80s for the weekend. A very slight chance for an isolated shower/storm on Saturday, but a better chance for scattered showers/storms on Sunday. Not expecting widespread rain, so some of the area could stay dry the entire weekend. High pressure moves in next week so our chance of rain will drop, but our temperatures will rise with all the sunshine. Staying hot and humid for all of next week. Have a good one!
