Hurricane Igor raging in the Atlantic

MIAMI - It's a powerful hurricane with 150 mph winds, but forecasters say Igor should stay in the open Atlantic away from land at least through the end of the week. 

It's too early to tell what might happen after that. You can track Hurricane Igor at our Hurricane Center.

Forecasters say another Atlantic storm, Tropical Storm Julia, could soon become a hurricane.

Closer to home, Meteorologist Brad Hlozek we'll get relief from the humidity this week, but don't look for cooler temperatures.  "Some drier and less humid air has made its way into East Texas and will allow our overnight lows to drop into the upper 60's.  Afternoon highs will still be warm, with highs in the lower to middle 90's," Hlozek predicts.
