TONIGHT: Early Evening Shower, Partial Clearing. Lo 57. Winds: W 5-10 mph.

TUESDAY: Cool, Breezy. Hi 70. Winds: W 5-10 mph.

The main line of shower and storms has already moved through the region, but a few leftover showers remain this evening (especially for northern areas). These remaining showers are marking the cold front that is going to roll through tonight and tomorrow. Behind the front breezy conditions will develop tonight and tomorrow. Temperatures ultimately fall to the mid-50s tonight with the cooler weather holding through the start of the work week.

It won’t be a drastic change, but drier and gradually cooler air will move back in this week. Monday will be seasonable, but breezy with gusts over 25 mph. By Wednesday and Thursday, highs will be back in the 60s with overnight lows back down into the 40s…but plenty of sunshine to look forward to by late-week!

Tropical Storm Ian is expected to strengthen into a hurricane as it heads into the western Caribbean over the next few days. In fact, it will likely be a major hurricane by the time it reaches the Gulf of Mexico Tuesday. Where it makes landfall remains uncertain, but the Florida panhandle is looking like the most likely spot given westward trends in recent days. As the storm lifts north toward the end of next week, we’ll likely see some rain by next Saturday, but right now does not look significant given preceding dry air in place. We’ll keep watching trends.
