Skies are cloudy early this morning and the rain has tapered off to drizzle, it is quite cool and breezy with temperatures mainly in the low-mid 40s. A little over an inch of rain has fallen since this time yesterday.
Today will continue to be cloudy, chilly and breezy as strong high pressure to our north along with a front just offshore will again give us a rather brisk northeast flow of the very cool air. We will have periods of rain and drizzle today with much lower rain amounts. The coast will continue to be pounded by high tides. Meanwhile Hurricane Joaquin is moving northeast from the Bahamas and will not affect our weather.
The high pressure will build down closer to the area on Sunday and after some morning drizzle or light rain we should see some improving conditions in the afternoon with somewhat milder temperatures.
Dry with milder temperatures next week!
