Thursday Morning: Warmer today, cooler on Friday; Monitoring two tropical waves

Weather

StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today: Mostly sunny and warm as a cold front moves into the region. This will not bring any rain – just possibly some passing clouds. Highs will top out in the mid 80s. This front will bring another surge of dry air.

Tonight: Clear skies – perfect viewing of the full “Harvest” moon! This will be the first full moon of the month. The next full moon will be a “Blue Moon” on Halloween! Overnight temperatures will fall into the mid 50s.

Friday: Plenty of sunshine and cooler with highs in the mid and upper 70s. Overnight temperatures will be in the lower 50s. Some may drop into the upper 40s by Saturday morning. Saturday morning will be the coolest morning of the forecast period.

Saturday: Sunny skies and very comfortable with highs in the mid 70s. Overnight temperatures in the mid 50s.

Sunday: Mostly sunny and a bit warmer. Highs will be near 80°F. Another front will sweep into the region Sunday and into Monday. No rain with this front – just another surge of dry air. Overnight temperatures in the upper 50s.

Monday: Warm and sunny with highs in the upper 70s. Overnight temperatures will be in the mid 50s.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny with highs in the upper 70s to around 80. We may have some tropical moisture move into the region, which would change our midweek forecast.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy. Highs will be in the lower 80s. A touch more humid. Again, we may have some tropical moisture move this far north. Time will tell.

Tracking the Tropics: A tropical wave will interact with a frontal boundary in the western and northwestern Caribbean. It will likely develop into a tropical depression by the weekend. Where it goes from there is up in the air. We will know more in the coming days. Also, another wave near the Lesser Antilles is now being watched by the NHC. It will have the potential to develop into a tropical system once it’s in the Caribbean. No imminent threat with either. Check back in with us daily. Next names on the list: Gamma and Delta.
