Overnight: partly cloudy, low near 70. Monday: partly cloudy, high near 90, wind northeast 6-12 m.p.h. Monday night: clear, low in the mid 60s. Tuesday: partly cloudy, high in the mid 80s, wind north 4-8 m.p.h.
A surface high pressure system centered north of the Great Lakes will extend southward during the beginning of the week. Clockwise flow around the high will create weak northerly winds which will very slowly transport slightly less humid air over the area. If the humidity decreases, the potential instability will be less and the chances for the development of afternoon showers and thunderstorms will be smaller. ***TROPICAL DEPRESSION NINE*** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Sunday the center of Tropical Depression Nine was located at latitude 23.4N and longitude 82.7W which put it about 100 miles southwest of Key West, Florida.
