TONIGHT: Partly Cloudy. Low 63.
MONDAY: Partly Cloudy, Stray PM Showers. High 85.
TUESDAY: Clearing and Cooler, Less Humid. High 78.
Today was another warm (slightly above average) September day with highs in the low to mid-80s. HIA officially reached 82° with the abundant sunshine from the afternoon. We had to mix out the fog to get the sunshine in many places, however the sunshine today made up for the extensive cloud cover yesterday.
Tonight more clouds will stream in with another disturbance arriving from the west. This weak wave in the atmosphere may trigger a couple of showers for Monday afternoon, but highs should easily reach the low to mid-80s again.
Cooler and less humid, crisp air arrives for the middle of this week. High temperatures from Tuesday through Thursday will hit the upper 70s, right on par for this time of year. Some of the longer term guidance are showing more warmth building ahead of next weekend. There is even a shot we hit 90° either next Saturday or Sunday.
The tropics remain active, however Tropical Storm Huberto will strengthen and head away from the eastern United States coastline. A wave of low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico has a low chance of organizing into a tropical disturbance. Another wave in the south-central Atlantic Ocean may have a higher chance of becoming a disturbance or tropical storm, but that is days away. At this point no immediate impact on our rain chances is likely from tropical activity.
