Tonight: Areas of fog are possible once again by the morning. Fog will mix out by the mid-morning hours. Overnight temperatures will only be in the mid and upper 60s. Also, a total lunar eclipse will occur early Tuesday morning. The partial eclipse begins shortly after 3 am, but the total eclipse begins at 4:16 am, peaks at 4:59 am, and ends at 5:41 am. The partial eclipse will only be visible through moonset, which is at 6:32 am.
Election Day: It’s going to be another unseasonably warm day with highs in the mid 80s for most areas. Some may even briefly warm into the upper 80s. It’s still going to be humid, but slightly drier will get pulled in from the northeast late in the day or night thanks to Nicole in the Atlantic. Overnight temperatures will be in the low and mid 60s.
Wednesday – Friday: As Nicole gets closer and closer to Florida, winds will pick up and usher in cooler and drier air from the northeast. High temperatures will be in the upper 70s to lower 80s and mornings will be in the 50s Thursday and Friday.
Weekend: A trough will force a cold front into the area and it will pass the area on Saturday. We are not expecting much, if any, rain with this front, but it will bring much colder air to the Gulf Coast. Expect highs to be in the 50s and 60s over the weekend and mornings in the 30s and 40s.
Next Week: Cooler weather should stick around for most of the week with highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s. We could have another shot for wet weather Tuesday and Wednesday.
Tracking the Tropics: Subtropical Storm Nicole will make landfall along the east coast of Florida late Wednesday and into Thursday as a hurricane. After, it may move into the eastern Gulf before turning back to the northeast as an incoming trough will lift it to the northeast. No direct impacts to our area.
