PM Update: Summer Delivers Nice Weather
Thursday promises more of the same
Some stubborn high clouds that have covered portions of the area are now giving way to increasingly sunny skies. Highs are reaching the low 80s just about everywhere and humidity levels are way down following the passage of a cold front yesterday. The evening promises to be a glorious one for any outdoor plans.
Tonight: We stay mostly clear overnight as temperatures fall into the crisp mid and upper 50s for the suburbs and to the low 60s in the city. Open the windows and let a taste of autumn in!
Tomorrow: Weather conditions stay about as good as they get in August tomorrow under mostly sunny skies with no noticeable humidity. Expect highs to reach the low-to-mid 80s across the area as a light breeze continues.
Tropics: Tropical Storm Fay continues to meander near the coast of the eastern Florida peninsula this afternoon. Land interaction has done a number on the storm and major re-strengthening prospects, at least in the short term, are now rather dim.
What Fay lacks in winds, she is trying to make up for with heavy rain. In addition to historic flooding already ongoing in places like Melbourne, Fla., the Hydrometeorological Prediction Center is forecasting additional big totals -- up to 15" -- across portions of the state over the next few days. Some locations in Florida may receive as much as 30 inches of rain before all is said and done.
