It took several days but we finally got a large break in the clouds yesterday. This morning sunshine greets us and will stick around for the entire day. Afternoon temperatures will be higher thanks to the sun. We’ll finish the day a bit above average, with highs in the mid 80’s. This time of year we typically have highs in the lower 80’s. Mainly clear skies tonight allow temperatures to fall into the mid 60’s. Areas of fog are possible overnight and early tomorrow morning.
Tomorrow and Friday keep the dry, mostly sunny trend. Highs will stay in the mid 80’s with lows in the mid 60’s. Saturday will have a few more clouds as a cold front moves by to our northeast. This front won’t bring rain to the area but it may have enough power to drop our afternoon temperatures on Sunday by a few degrees to the lower 80’s. Rain stays out of the forecast for the rest of the 7-day.
Hurricane Joaquin is a category 1 hurricane as it moves east-northeast through the North Atlantic. It is now moving away from the Gulf Stream too, taking the storm over cooler waters. This will help weaken the storm with it possibly losing its tropical status by tonight. Then the storm is likely to develop fronts like a typical storm system for the mid-latitudes as it moves towards Europe.
