3rd August 2018: Four day weather synopsis: A weak tropical wave will traverse the area Friday night; however dry and stable conditions will continue to inhibit significant shower activity. As the wave moves out of the area hazy conditions, associated with dust from the Sahara Dessert, will once again gradually return with dust concentration expected to reach moderate levels by Saturday.

Therefore, a noticeable reduction in visibility can be expected thereafter. Another tropical wave will move across the area early Sunday; however, marginal moisture and instability associated with this wave will increase the chance for shower activity during this time. Otherwise, the high pressure system will dominate the area, keeping the atmosphere relatively dry and stable.

Moderate breeze from the east result in significant wave heights not anticipated to exceed 1.8 meters or 6 feet. A caution for small craft operators will only be in effect for Friday and Saturday as sea conditions are expected to improve thereafter.
