The air dries out a bit by Thursday and Friday and our chance of rain is lower with only a spot shower or storm possible. For the weekend, temperatures drop a couple degrees with heat indices staying under 110. Most of the weekend looks dry with only a spot shower chance. As moisture increases Monday into Tuesday from a tropical wave, our chance of rain increases with scattered showers possible for Labor Day. In the tropics, Hurricane Dorian is forecast to affect Florida this weekend, possibly strengthening to a category 3 hurricane before making landfall, taking a turn toward the west. It's possible Dorian could enter the northern Gulf by the middle of next week but is not expected to affect us.
