Faith Based Events

We’ll feel the effects of Saharan dust on Thursday, as much drier air will create a bit of a haze.  Look for sun and a few clouds to start and a few isolated showers and storms in the mid to late afternoon.  Thursday’s highs will be in the low 90s again.

Friday’s forecast calls for more of the same — hazy skies, plenty of sun, and a few isolated showers and storms.  Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s.

In the tropics, the low several hundred miles southeast of Cape Cod has a low chance of developing into a subtropical depression during the next day or so.  After that, colder waters are expected to cut off the possibility of development.
