Monday will bring lots of sun and a few clouds in the wake of the front.  Highs on Monday will be in the mid 70s.

In the tropics, Tropical Storm Sebastien has strengthened over open waters.  At 5 am Thursday, Sebastien was located about 355 miles north-northeast of the Leeward Islands, and it was moving north-northeast at 8 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were 60 miles per hour, and Sebastien is expected to reach hurricane strength before losing its tropical characteristics over the weekend.  It is forecast to dissipate before reaching the Azores.
