PM Update: Still Cool, Clouds Return Tonight
Warmer on Friday with a mix of clouds and sun
Even with high pressure taking (temporary) control some clouds were able to form today. The clouds were still less widespread than recent days and are waning again this afternoon. Crisp morning readings have only slowly risen into the mid-60s across much of the area, and a light wind continues to add a chill to the air, especially in the shade. Nonetheless, a pretty pleasant fall evening is coming up, so throw on a long-sleeved shirt and enjoy.
Through Tonight: The evening will be mostly clear and cool as temperatures fall toward 60 around sunset. We're looking at another cool-to-chilly night, but probably a little warmer than last night, thanks in part to increasing clouds that may result in a period of fully cloudy skies. Lows should range from the mid-40s in the coldest spots to the lower 50s in the warmest.
Tomorrow (Friday): Clouds will again be more numerous on Friday as a storm system approaches, eventually passing north of the area this weekend. A southerly wind behind a northward-moving warm front should help turn the heat up a bit. Highs mostly rise into the mid-70s.
Tropics: The Atlantic hurricane season remains quiet to start October. In fact, it is currently the quietest since 1997. Weather Underground's Jeff Masters is predicting two additional storms this year which would keep us well below the climatological average. Hot spots for development in October often include the Western Caribbean and parts of the Gulf of Mexico. On the other side of the globe, the Philippines -- recently hard hit by Typhoon Ketsana -- is staring down Super Typhoon Parma. Parma is expected to hit the area as a Category 4 storm this weekend.
