Today’s forecast is a 10 out of 10! It will be so pretty outside today with lots of sunshine, low humidity and highs in the middle to upper 70s. Winds will also be a lot calmer today compared to yesterday. Another cool and refreshing night is ahead of us. With fairly calm winds and clear skies, temperatures will fall to the lower 50s.

We will wrap up the work week with fall-like weather for Friday. Sunny skies will persist all day long with temperatures working their way back to the upper 70s to near 80 degrees. It will be another beautiful day to spend outside!

High pressure will begin to build to the east through the weekend and during the week ahead. This will lead to temperatures and humidity levels to trend upwards a bit as winds shift back out of the south. Low 80s are in the forecast for Saturday before we see near normal highs on Sunday and into next week in the mid and upper 80s. Chances for a few showers could be reintroduced back into the forecast by the middle of next week.

Out in the tropics, Tropical Storm Sam formed a short time ago in the central tropical Atlantic. The forecast track has Sam potentially becoming a major hurricane by next week. It doesn’t pose a threat to land within the next few days, but will continue to monitor it over time. Rose and Peter have faded away and we are still watching Odette’s remnants that could reform. There is a medium chance of this happening over the next 5 days.
