The general weather pattern remains the same the next few days with an upper trough over the eastern part of the nation helping to steer fronts farther south than usual for August. This setup will relax for a time next week, but temporarily. This brings up some concerns for August 21 and the eclipse, but it's too early to give any specifics on that. Out in the tropics, Franklin has come and gone; the storm's remains will reach the East Pacific and there's an outside chance that it reorganizes once it's over water. There are a couple of areas of interest in the Atlantic and one is close to home and will have some effects to deal with. But, the one that is nearby probably won't develop, while the one farther out that might will likely stay well away from the Southeast.
