Our mixture of sunshine and clouds continue, with Highs in the upper 70s and lows falling to the upper 40s. No rain in the forecast. A much cooler weekend ahead following our Cold Front with drier and cooler air funneling down into the South out of the North.
A week post-Ian, we are still looking at potential activity developing in parts of the Atlantic Basin. One wave, west of the Cabo Verde Islands has a HIGH chance of development in the coming days. This system would drift westward in the open ocean if it does develop. Another wave nearing the Windward Islands could see a slow development cycle in the coming days as it enters the Caribbean, but right now – through 5 days, it has a LOW chance to develop.
