SEVEN – DAY WEATHER FORECAST September 2nd to September 8th, 2021

General Situation: An upper level low will support unsettled weather while a weak high pressure ridge will maintain light to gentle breezes over the Bahamas. Rain and thunder chances will gradually increase as a developing low pressure system is forecast to loom to the East of the Florida coast and close to Northwest Grand Bahama. Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible as well as localized flooding in low-lying and flood-prone areas.  Daytime High Temperatures will remain in the low 90’s with heat indices soaring into the triple digits. In the Tropics, Tropical Storm Larry will continue to become better organized and is forecast to become a major hurricane by Friday as its current track moves it away from the Bahamas and hopefully into the open Atlantic.
