Mostly Sunny and Breezy Sunday

Sunday features good sun with a few clouds at times, a brisk breeze, and just the chance of a shower.  An elevated risk of dangerous rip currents is in place at the Atlantic beaches.  Coastal flooding is likely in low-lying areas along the east coast at high tide on Sunday through at least Tuesday.  Highs on Sunday will be in the upper 80s in the east coast metro area and a couple of degrees warmer elsewhere.

Monday will bring a mix of sun, clouds, and showers on the breeze.  Monday’s highs will be in the upper 80s in the east coast metro area and the low 90s along the Gulf coast.

Look for Tuesday to be another day of sun, clouds, and passing showers on the breeze.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.

Wednesday will bring a mix of sun and clouds with periods of showers and storms.  Wednesday’s highs will be mostly in the upper 80s.

Faith Based Events

Thursday’s forecast calls for some sun, more clouds, and periods of showers and storms.  Highs on Thursday will be in the upper 80s.

In the tropics, Hurricane Lorenzo is in the middle of the Atlantic and has intensified once again.  This large and powerful hurricane is generating swells throughout the Atlantic basin, from the Azores to the northeastern coast of South America and the Lesser Antilles.  Look for swells, rough surf, and dangerous rip currents to be a concern for the southeast U.S. coast and the Bahamas as well.  At 5 am on Sunday, Lorenzo was about 1360 miles southwest of the Azores and had maximum sustained winds of 155 miles per hour.  Lorenzo was moving north at 10 miles per hour.  It is forecast to move near the Azores Tuesday night into Wednesday as a hurricane before reaching the British Isles as a post-tropical storm early on Friday.
