PM Update: Cloud Free and Rather Toasty
Continued sunny and hot on Wednesday
September is generally the beginning of the end of heat around the area but the next few days won't play by those rules. Today's highs are running about 5-8 degrees above average, as most places hit the upper 80s to near 90 this afternoon with nary a cloud to be seen. This evening should be quite pleasant for any outdoor activities as temperatures drop back through the 80s into the upper 70s around sunset.
Tomorrow: Wednesday will again be quite hot for September. Fortunately, humidity will remain rather low through much of the day, so it will be bearable. Expect highs to reach 90 or above across most of the area as sunshine dominates the day.
Tropics: Now in the peak of hurricane season, things have become extremely active across the Atlantic basin. We are tracking Hanna closely to see how it will affect weather in the local area later this week. In addition to Hanna, Tropical Storm Ike and newly formed Tropical Storm Josephine are moving west across the ocean. Ike may begin to threaten the U.S. by late in the upcoming weekend when it is expected to be in the Bahamas, and Josephine will need to be monitored as well for a possible impact sometime at the end of next week.
