Early Autumn Showers, Watching The Tropics

Thursday features good sun in the morning and some afternoon clouds and showers.  It will still be on the breezy side along the east coast, so a high risk of dangerous rip currents remains until at least Thursday evening.  Flooding at high tide will still be a concern along the Atlantic coast on Thursday.  Highs on Thursday will be in the upper 80s.

Friday will bring plenty of passing showers along the Gulf coast, while the east coast metro area will see a few afternoon showers and maybe a storm in spots.  Friday’s highs will be in the upper 80s along the east coast and the low 90s elsewhere.

Saturday will feature a mix of sun, clouds, and showers.  Saturday’s highs will be mostly in the upper 80s.

Look for breezy conditions on Sunday, and we’ll see sun, clouds, and showers as well.  Sunday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.

Monday’s forecast calls for a mix of sun, clouds, and periods of showers.  Highs on Monday will be in the upper 80s.

Lorenzo is now an extratropical system speeding to the northeast.  It  will affect the British Isles on Thursday into Friday.  Elsewhere, the low in the northwestern Caribbean is moving towards the Yucatan and will eventually reach the western Gulf of Mexico.  This feature has a low chance of developing into a depression during the next 5 days.
