Still Breezy on Wednesday, Tracking The Tropics

Wednesday features a mix of sun and clouds with mostly afternoon showers and a few storms.  A high risk of dangerous rip currents remains in place at the Atlantic beaches on Wednesday until at least Thursday.  Flooding at high tides is likely in low-lying locations along the Atlantic coast on Wednesday through Thursday afternoon.  Highs on Wednesday will be in the upper 80s in the east coast metro area and the low 90s elsewhere.

Thursday will be mostly sunny with periods of showers and storms, and breezy conditions are expected again along the east coast.  Thursday’s highs will be in the upper 80s along the east coast and the low 90s elsewhere.

Look for sun, clouds, showers, and a few storms on Friday.  Friday’s highs will be mostly in the upper 80s.

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

Sunday’s forecast includes good sun, a few clouds, and passing showers and storms.  Highs on Sunday will be in the upper 80s.

In the tropics, Lorenzo is zooming away from the Azores.  At 5 am Wednesday, Lorenzo was located near 42.3 North, 29.4 West about 220 miles north-northeast of the western Azores.  Lorenzo was moving northeast at 43 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were 90 miles per hour.  This large and powerful system will become extratropical later on Wednesday and affect portions of the British Isles on Thursday and Friday.

Elsewhere, we’re tracking a low in the northwestern Caribbean that will eventually reach the Yucatan and then enter the southwestern Gulf of Mexico.  This feature has a low chance of developing during the next 5 days.
