PM Update: Cloudy evening and night. A shower?

By Ian Livingston

Cool and partly sunny Thursday with some breezes

Plentiful morning sun gave way to increasing afternoon clouds ahead of a cold front approaching the area. Highs generally reached only the mid-50s, but light winds helped make it feel pleasant in the sun. Clouds continue to increase through evening and we could see a shower or two into the overnight as the front moves by and gets a storm going off the coast.

Through Tonight: We'll be mostly cloudy overnight and there is the chance of some passing showers. Any rain that falls should be light and scattered at best. Clouds help keep temperatures a bit warmer than last night, with lows from the mid-30s to the lower 40s.

Tomorrow (Thursday): We're looking at a partly sunny and breezy day on Thursday. A storm system winding up to our northeast will help deliver a slight chance of afternoon showers (I don't really expect much of anything) and increasing winds from the northwest that could gust to around 20 mph late in the day. Highs shoot for the mid-50s.

TD 11: With a few weeks left in the hurricane season, there is some activity in a typical November hot spot. Tropical Depression 11 formed this morning in the Southwest Caribbean near the Central American coastline. The system is small, but well developed for a depression, and is likely to become a tropical storm soon. Steering currents in the area are light and forecasts brings it over land for a time. We'll keep an eye on it should it decide to drift north and threaten the United States -- much too soon to say whether or not that will happen.

It would be just like Mother Nature to "stick it to the man," who has dismissed this hurricane season as a total bust, by churning up a November surprise that develops into a ferocious frothy firestorm of fearsome force felling every feeble fortification foisted in it path. I mean, could happen, right?

Ida (formerly TD 11) looks to be strengthening pretty well tonight. It might be a hurricane before landfall, though it's not far from land now.
