Higher Than Normal Rain Chances Start Thursday Thanks to a Tropical Wave

An upper-level tropical disturbance will drive deeper tropical moisture into the state starting Thursday afternoon, leading to locally strong thunderstorms over inland areas by early evening. Showers and thunderstorms are forecast to become more widespread and heavier Friday and Saturday, especially near the coastlines where sea breeze interactions could enhance the rainfall.

Tropical depression or storm formation with this weather feature is highly unlikely, but it will be watched closely. In the eastern Atlantic, a new tropical wave approaching the Cape Verde islands has a medium chance of developing over the weekend. This disturbance poses no imminent threat to the United States in the next five days.
