12:21 pm
representing the moisture, and that sort of sandy color, that's the dry air moving on in. it certainly will continue to be a theme for us in the days ahead. because high pressure is hooking us up. it is setting up shop basically, just paying nice long extended visit. so with that said, since it is pretty quiet pattern here locally, we turn our focus to the drop innings. because in you we are getting ever closer to the peak of hurricane season. still have depression now fiona out over the open waters of the atlantic. another to watch, decent likelihood at least going to start to develop, but the better chance for an area to actually develop and maybe become our next named system, it is this one, this has, at this point, pretty much a ten out of ten potential to become at least tropical depression, and eventually, we think it will become gaston. so with something that bears monitoring, although a lot of time to decide what it will do as it migrates wells. although at this point, odds are, it will continue on a westward path, nearing the lesser antilles with the next
12:22 pm
