that's not really that much of an effect on us. this is the possible developing tropical storm and it looks like it's headed ford bahamas probably by the second half of the weekend and perhaps into florida early next week so that's something we'll be watching there and then finally tropical storm gaston which is starting to build in strength probably becomes a category one hurricane. right now it looks like it wants to shoot up into the central atlantic and any other be that much of an issue. obviously we are building into that part of the tropical season where it tends to be most active. sunny and about the today today. your seven-day forecast 82, low humidity, more sunshine tomorrow, warmer with a high of 87 degrees. still low humidity. and then a tad more humid on thursday, 89 degrees there. hot and humid on friday, though, 94 degrees is the high with some thunderstorms possible in the afternoon and evening. and for the weekend partly sunny and hot on saturday, 93. down to 89 sunday and monday very warm and humid with a high of 89. remember, when we're not on the air you can always get the latest weather information on 6abc.com/weather and as the
