Above Average Highs Continue

 

AM Headlines:
  • Mild Morning w/ Patchy Fog
  • Sunny and warmer through the weekend
  • Series of boundaries fill into the area
  • Better rain chances early next week
Discussion:
It will be another warm and sunny day with highs in the mid to upper 80s. A backdoor cold front keeps temps above average 5-7 degrees today. Not a lot of moisture is associated with any of these boundaries which means slim to none on the rain chance potential through the end of the weekend. A cold front will push through late Thursday and bring slightly cooler temps for Friday, but highs will remain slightly above average in the low 80s Friday. Temps will climb back to the mid-80s this weekend. Slightly more humidity to end the weekend will make it feel more like the upper 80s ahead of a stronger boundary early next week. The best chance of rain will return to the forecast Monday into Tuesday.
Tropics Update
Hurricane Sam is still a category 4 major hurricane. It will begin to curve sharply to the north overnight. Although there won’t be any direct impacts to the east coast as this storm will remain far away from the coast, there will be an increased rip current risk by the end of the week. Behind Sam, there are two other areas to watch, with one likely becoming our next named storm (Wanda) later today.
