Tropics Are Brewing…Emily is Next Up

Our weather outlook here at home is fairly tranquil, but there is a little weather to watch once this awesome weekend is in the books. Today many areas approached 90…but most did not reach it. Sunday will be a tad cooler with Sunshine and highs in the mid 80′s. Lighter NW winds will shift onshore for a PM sea breeze which will cool many area beaches into the 70′s during the afternoon.
