TONIGHT: More Clouds, Stray Shower Late. Lo 55. Winds: Light.
SUNDAY: PM Scattered Showers & Storms. Hi 75. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.
MONDAY: Partly Cloudy, Breezy. Hi 72. Winds: W 10-20 mph.
It won’t be as chilly tonight thanks to more clouds moving in, but it will still be comfortable! There can be a stray shower Sunday morning but a better chance for showers will come during the afternoon as a front crosses the region. With some cooler air aloft, a few thunderstorms are possible too, and with plenty of wind shear in place, we can’t rule out a stronger storm. The activity should exit by sunset and then our attention will turn to the cooler air to follow next week.
It won’t be a drastic change, but drier and gradually cooler air will move back in next week after moderating temps this weekend. By next Wednesday and Thursday, highs will be stuck in the 60s with overnight lows back down into the 40s…plenty of fall weather to look forward to!
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 today. 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. We’ll keep watching trends.
