How dry can it get?

It was a very dry day for August In Southwest Florida on Tuesday, as drier air is now in place as the mid and lower levels.

Winds will become more southeasterly tomorrow thus returning us to our more typical summer time pattern of sunny mornings and scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoons, but with the dry air in the atmosphere, it will be mainly inland activity.
 
We actually look to be even drier for the end of the week and the start of the weekend, with any activity being very isolated.

Tracking the Tropics-
 
Meteorologists at the National Hurricane Center are keeping a close eye on an area of low pressure near Little River Inlet, North Carolina this afternoon.  Satellite and radar imagery indicate thunderstorms associated with this area of low pressure have not become a more organized since earlier in the day.
 
There is some potential for a tropical cyclone to form later today or tonight as the continues to move 
northeasterly along the coasts of South and North Carolina.  Locally heavy rains will spread along these coastal areas today and tonight.  
 
The Hurricane Center is giving this a 30% chance of formation in the next 48 hours.  Even if this system does develop, it will move into the open Atlantic Ocean and merge with a frontal system that will continue to carry it further away from the United States.
