We began the day under fair skies and temperatures in the 60s. Today calls for variably cloudy to mostly cloudy skies and temps topping out in the low 80s. Although at least one forecast models shows an isolated shower or two today, I'm not convinced at this point that any moisture will reach the ground.
Expect high pressure to build in for a few days, limiting our cloud cover and warming our temperatures. Highs in the mid-80s are expected.
Late Friday afternoon and evening an approaching cold front will increase our cloud cover and give us a chance of showers. The showers could linger through our southern counties through Saturday.
Look for cooler temperatures this weekend, with mostly sunny skies returning by Sunday and going into our new workweek.
Hurricane Joaquin is maintaining it's strength from yesterday with sustained winds at 85 mph. But slow weaking is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Joaquin is expected to become an extratropical cyclone Wednesday or Wednesday night. The hurricane continues to move to the northeast at 17 mph.
