PM Update: A shower or two, then clearing
Mostly sunny Friday before cold Friday night
Lots of sun visited the area again this morning and highs have reached up between 55 and 60 many spots. Though we've seen more in the way of clouds during the afternoon, just a stray shower or two is expected through early evening, and any cloudiness should subside as the sun sets. A sometimes gusty wind from the northwest adds an extra chill to the air through the night and into tomorrow.
Through Tonight: After evening clouds and isolated showers dwindle, a mostly clear and chilly night is upcoming. Just about everyone should get into the 30s, with lows ranging from the mid-30s for the suburbs to near 40 downtown.
Tomorrow (Friday): We end the work week with lots of sun and cool temperatures. Highs probably don't get much above the low 50s. Winds could be somewhat gusty -- up to 25 mph or so -- from the northwest during the midday, but should subside late. Lighter winds set the stage for what could be the coolest night of this young cold season.
Ida: Yesterday we were looking at tropical depression #11 in the Southwest Caribbean. Well, it quickly became a tropical storm and then a hurricane before impacting Nicaragua this morning. The center of now Tropical Storm Ida remains close to the shore but fully over land. Current indications are that whatever is left of the circulation will drift north and back over water, possibly re-intensifying. The waters of the Western Caribbean are still very warm and the storm could become a hurricane again if it survives its trip through Central America. It is very difficult to get a strong storm to move into the U.S. this time of year, but it is possible and we will keep watch.
