A frontal system will be in our area today and move off the coast by this evening. Showers and some thunderstorms are expected mainly this morning although there may be some scattered showers this afternoon into early this evening. Temperatures will be cooler than yesterday but the humidity will remain high.
After almost two weeks of either high heat or humidity we finally can enjoy nice September weather as high pressure builds in from the Great Lakes. Thursday will be seasonably mild but the humidity will fall with dew points in the comfortable 40s and low 50s.
High pressure will continue to dominate our weather Friday through the weekend, however winds will increase as Hurricane Lee moves up the coast well to our east. Also the storm will cause high surf along with dangerous rip currents through the weekend. Skies will be mostly fair but we may have some high clouds from Lee mainly on Saturday.
Comfortable temperatures and humidity should continue into early next week.
TODAY – SEP 13 – Showers and thunderstorms this morning with a chance of a shower or thunderstorm this afternoon, humid with a high near 80.
