Jeff Morrow and the WAFB First Alert weather team provide an update on What We're Tracking Next on Wednesday, May 31.

The low-pressure system has a 20% chance for tropical development but poses no direct impact on the local area. If the area can see an increase in winds, it might help out with local air quality issues. An Ozone Action Day is in place for the local area today. An updated forecast for tomorrow is expected later this afternoon.

Temperatures will remain in the low 90°s for the foreseeable future. Humidity levels will remain tolerable as long as northerly flow continues. That might start to change as we move into next week.
