Here at home, Monday features a few early east coast showers, sun and clouds throughout most of the day, and just the chance of an afternoon shower or storm in spots.  Highs on Monday will be in the low 90s.

Florence is spinning down, but its rains will bring additional flooding to parts of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.  At 5 am Monday, Florence was centered near 36.9 North, 82.2 West, about 125 miles from Roanoke, Virginia.  Florence was moving north-northeast at 13 miles per hour, and maximum sustained winds were 30 miles per hour.  Florence’s remnants could cause flash flooding in portions of Maryland, Pennsylvania, southern New York state, and southern New England.
Elsewhere, Tropical Depression Joyce is weakening in the open Atlantic.  At 5 am Monday, Joyce was located near 34.2 North, 29.0 West, and was moving east at 17 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were down to 35 miles per hour.  And the remnants of Isaac are bringing rain to Jamaica.  This system has a low chance of redeveloping during the next 5 days as it moves toward the Yucatan.
