FIRST ALERT SUMMARY
Expect a few showers this afternoon into the evening as a shortwave trough moves over the region in the upper levels of the atmosphere. This brings a 20% chance of showers. Skies clear up and lows dip down to the mid 50s with partly cloudy skies expected.
Thursday is dry with highs in the mid 70s. Skies are mostly sunny with high pressure building over the region.
Friday morning we are in the low 50s and by the afternoon expect a few clouds with highs in the upper 70s.
High pressure moves to the east and brings more moisture from the east. This increases cloud coverage and also yields a 30% chance of rain showers. Saturday we see low 80s with a southern flow taking hold.
Also, next Saturday night is when we turn our clocks back and gain an extra hour of sleep, but it will move up our sunset time to 5:26 PM Sunday night.
Sunday looks a little more cloudy and wet. Expect on and off showers throughout the day as the southern flow continues to pump in moisture to the region. Lows are in the mid 60s and highs reach the upper 70s. Chance of rain is around 40%.
Monday looks nice with upper 70s to low 80s. We have partly cloudy skies.
Tuesday the moisture starts to increase and there’s a 20% chance of showers for your election day. Winds are picking up as well with breezes around 10-20mph.
We are watching Hurricane Lisa has made landfall in Central America in Belize. There’s also Hurricane Martin that will move north and not threaten any land as it loses its tropical characteristics over the Northern Atlantic. There’s also a small low pressure system that will develop over time east of the Bahamas, that system has a 20% chance of development in the next 5 days.
