Sun And Breezy Showers

Monday features mostly sunny skies but some showers and clouds will blow in on a strong ocean breeze.  A high risk of dangerous rip currents remains in place at the Atlantic beaches on Monday, lasting at least through Tuesday evening.  Highs on Monday will be mostly in the upper 80s.

Tuesday will be breezy, with good sun, a few clouds, and passing showers.  Tuesday’s highs will be mostly in the upper 80s.

Showers will be more widespread on Wednesday, but we’ll also see periods of sun.  Wednesday’s highs will be mostly in the upper 80s.

Look for a mix of sun and clouds with periods of showers on Thursday.  Thursday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.

Friday will feature sun, clouds, and periods of showers, with the bulk of the activity in the east coast metro area.  Highs on Friday will be in the upper 80s.

In the tropics, we’re continuing to track a very large and powerful Hurricane Lorenzo. At 5 am Monday, Lorenzo was located about 1125 miles west-southwest of the Azores.  Lorenzo had maximum sustained winds of 105 miles per hour early on Monday, and it was moving north-northeast at 13 miles per hour.  Lorenzo will pass over or near the Azores on Wednesday, and watches are up for the island chain.  Lorenzo is the most intense hurricane so far east and north since record-keeping began in the 19th century.
