Posted: Thursday, August 3, 2017. 1:46 p.m. CST.

By BBN Staff: The 24-hour forecast is for mostly fair and warm weather to continue with sunny skies today and partly cloudy tonight.

The wind will blow from the east at 10-20 knots.

The sea state will be moderate.

High temperatures are expected as follows: In the coast, 89 degrees Fahrenheit; 95 degrees Fahrenheit inland, and 82 degrees Fahrenheit in the hills.

Low temperatures for tonight in the coast are expected at 82 degrees Fahrenheit, inland at 75 degrees Fahrenheit and in the hills, 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

The extended forecast for Friday and Friday night is for a few showers and isolated thunderstorms.

The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a vigorous tropical wave accompanied by a broad low pressure system that is producing a large area of cloudiness and showers more than 300 miles south-southeast of the Cabo Verde Islands.

Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for gradual development, and a tropical depression is likely to form by early next week over the eastern or central tropical Atlantic Ocean.

This system is forecast to move toward the west or west-northwest at 10 to 15 mph for the next several days.

The NHC is also monitoring a strong tropical wave located over the southeastern Caribbean Sea.

The wave is producing a large area of cloudiness and thunderstorms, along with tropical-storm-force wind gusts in squalls.

Environmental conditions are expected to become a little more conducive for development by Sunday over the northwestern Caribbean Sea and by early next week over the Bay of Campeche while the disturbance moves westward or west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph.

This system could produce brief heavy rainfall and gusty winds over Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao tonight and Friday.
