Issued: Friday, August 22
Launch Weather Officer: Joel Tumbiolo, 45th Weather Squadron
Synoptic Discussion: "Light south to north steering flow will result in early development and inland penetration of the east coast sea breeze. This will result in a majority of showers and thunderstorms remaining west of I-95 corridor. Weak frontal boundary approaching from the north will be over FL-GA border over the weekend, before dissipating.
"Forecast beyond Tuesday will depend on evolution of Tropical Depression #9.
"Main concerns for the instantaneous launch window will be the proximity of residual cloud cover associated showers and thunderstorms that develop during the afternoon and evening hours."
