MAIN WEATHER CONCERNS:
A muggy morning will be followed by hazy skies as more Saharan dust covers our skies in a veil of whitish, brownish particulates.

Feels-like temperatures will reach 104° making for dangerous heat.

WHAT IS THE WEATHER FORECAST FOR THE BEACHES IN CENTRAL FLORIDA?
Skies should remain storm-free Thursday. The rip current risk is low to moderate. Surf resides in the 1-3 inch range. Highs on the sand head for the upper 80s. Water temps hovering around 84 degrees.
A weak trough will approach this weekend, displacing the Saharan dust and making for much higher rain chances. Expect numerous afternoon storms by the time Saturday arrives, as we resume a more typically busy rainy-season pattern.
Rain chances will develop on the west side of the state during this time and press steadily east, ending up on the Atlantic beaches. This could put a dent in the ongoing dry spell in that area.
TRACKING THE TROPICS:
The tropics still mainly quiet thanks to the Saharan Dust. A tropical wave now only has a 10% chance to develop, after earlier bullish forecasts for development. This wave could fall apart in the coming days. Download the FOX 35 Storm Team weather app to not only track the tropics, but also the afternoon/ evening showers and
