Scattered downpours and storms end this evening, warm through Wednesday

Forecast

Continuing to track Dorian...

THIS EVENING: Scattered Showers & T-Storms Ending By 10pm. Temperatures Falling To Near 78.

TONIGHT: Partly Cloudy, Patchy Fog. Lo 65.

TUESDAY: Partly Cloudy, Warm! Hi 85.

Scattered showers and storms ahead of a cold front will end from north to south this evening. No severe weather is expected but gusty winds are possible with some of the stronger cells. Rain will end by 10pm as the front crosses with fair skies overnight and lows in the 60s.

The first part of this week will continue the summery feel. Tomorrow should be dry with highs in the mid-80s and a cold front will track through Wednesday with more showers and t-storms late in the day. Highs on Wednesday could make a run at 90 degrees! Once the front moves through by late Wednesday, things cool us down big-time by Thursday and Friday. By then, Dorian will spread in clouds with most if not all of the rain expected to remain east of the area. This weekend is looking mainly dry at this point with another weak front crossing late Saturday. This will keep us cool after a brief jump in the temps Saturday. Highs early next week look to remain in the 70s!

Hurricane Dorian is now stationary over the Grand Bahama and continues to unleash complete destruction. If there is any good news, it is that Dorian has weakened slightly to a Category 4. However, destructive winds and tremendous amounts of rainfall will continue as this thing remains stalled over the next day or so. The official National Hurricane Center track forecast continues to keep Dorian off-shore of Florida, however, slight changes in the steering winds could easily bring the eye closer to land. By late Tuesday and into Wednesday, the storm will begin to pick up steam and race northeastward toward the Carolinas. It appears likely that Dorian will at least come very close to making a landfall near the Outer Banks if not sooner over the Carolina coast. Residents there should prepare for high storm surge along with hurricane force winds Thursday.
