Synopsis: A tropical wave will exit the area over the next 24 hours and give way to relatively dry and dusty air from the Sahara Desert, which will serve to inhibit shower activity. Hence, the possible rainfall total for the next 24 hours is 0 to 5 mm (0 to 0.20 in).

Weather tonight: Partly cloudy with a 50 percent or a moderate chance of showers.

Weather tomorrow: Partly sunny and hazy with a 30 percent or a moderate chance of showers.
