Forecast: Continued Comfortable

By Brian Jackson

By Brian Jackson

Today and tomorrow will be slightly warmer than recent days with highs approaching 80, but the weather will remain sunny and dry. What a way to bring in the new autumn season! A dry cold front passing through tonight means temperatures will cool a bit for mid-week before we see a slight chance for some rain by next weekend.


Sunny and mild, 79-82. We'll warm up a bit today with some locales reaching into the lower 80s. Still, conditions will continue to be very pleasant and refreshing. Skies will be mostly sunny, with some high clouds streaming by, and winds will blow lightly out of the north.

Overnight, a cold front will move through the area. However, this front will be moisture-starved so we won't have any rain and will, at most, notice a few clouds. Skies will vary from partly to mostly cloudy lows will drop from 55-60 (suburbs to city). Winds will be northerly, becoming calm towards morning.

Confidence: High

Mostly sunny, 75-78.The first official day of Autumn couldn't be much nicer. The weather will remain sunny and pleasant across the region. Temperatures will top out in the mid-to-upper 70s and winds will be from the north-northeast at less than 10 mph.

Monday night we'll see some additional high clouds move by overhead as a weak disturbance approaches. Again though, skies will range from partly to mostly cloudy overnight with winds from the east at less than 10 mph. Overnight lows will dip to the mid 50s downtown and near 50 in the cooler suburbs.

Confidence: High


The forecast for Tuesday through Friday will sound quite familiar. High pressure stays in control meaning mostly sunny skies along with afternoon highs in the mid 70s. Our next chance for rain won't probably be until Friday evening when a coastal low may approach from the southeast. Confidence: Medium-High

No, no it doesn't. Nothing like biking through the woods with an early morning chill in the air.

Disturbed weather near Puerto Rico shows signs of developing into a tropical depression soon. Quite a few models are now showing an east coast threat late week/next weekend.
