Friday Morning: Much cooler and breezy today; Picture-perfect on Saturday

Weather

StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today: Cold front should move offshore during the morning hours. A few showers are possible this morning. Clouds will linger through most of the day, along with gusty north winds. This will lead to temperatures in the 60s for most of the day. Some spots may not even get out of the 60s. A few spots may warm to the 70-73 degree range, but that’s IF the clouds clear.

Tonight: Clear skies with chilly overnight temperatures in the 40s and 50s. Northern areas will be in the mid and upper 40s. Southern areas will be in the low and mid 50s.

Weekend: Beautiful weekend with highs in the mid 70s on Saturday and highs in the low and mid 80s on Sunday. Low humidity on Saturday before it begins to increase on Sunday. Still comfortable, however. Overnight temperatures will be in the 50s on Saturday night and 60s Sunday night.

Next Week: Rain chances increase a bit on Monday, but moreso on Tuesday and Wednesday as a few disturbances pass by. Climate Prediction Center calls for near or above-normal temperatures next week. Highs will be in the mid 80s with overnight temperatures in the 60s, which would put us above-normal. No sight of a cold front until possibly next weekend.

Tracking the Tropics: We will have to watch for development next week in the western Caribbean. Models hint on a hurricane developing, but our weather pattern should “shoo” it away from our neck of the woods. Another system may develop near Bermuda. No signs of a threat to the Continental US. No imminent threat, but this is a friendly reminder that there is still a lot of time left in hurricane season. Next name on the list is Epsilon and Zeta. If we get these two named storms, this would tie 2020 with 2005 for the most active season on record.
