We have cloudy skies early on this first day of October and there is some drizzle in parts of the area, winds continue out of the northeast.
Today we continue to have cloudy skies with periods of light rain or drizzle likely as high pressure off the New England coast and a weakening low pressure over the Midwest dominates the weather, winds will be lighter today and precipitation amounts will be less, temperatures will be slightly milder.
The low pressure will weaken further on Sunday but we should still have a chance of light rain or drizzle but we may finally see some sunshine in the afternoon.
Finally improving weather for next week with mainly dry conditions with seasonably mild temperatures.
TODAY – Cloudy with periods of light rain or drizzle likely, high in the mid 60s.
TONIGHT – Cloudy with a chance of light rain or drizzle, low in the upper 50s
SUNDAY – Mostly cloudy with a chance of light rain or drizzle, high near 70.
MONDAY – Partly sunny, high in the mid 70s.
TUESDAY – Partly sunny, high in the upper 60s.
WEDNESDAY – Partly sunny, high in the upper 60s.

MARINE FORECAST – Small craft advisories in effect till 2 a.m. on Sunday for northeast winds gusting to 30 knots, seas 6-9 feet.
OUTLOOK – No advisories expected Sunday and Monday with possible small craft advisories for Tuesday and Wednesday.
TROPICS – Hurricane Matthew is now a dangerous category 4 storm and is located in the Western Caribbean, Matthew is expected to turn northward and cross eastern Jamaica and western Cuba, after that it is very uncertain of its path with the American model having it ride along the coast and affect our area next weekend while the European model has the storm move safely out to sea, my bets are on the European but it is too early to say if what will occur.
Have a good day!
