PM Update: Rain to depart, but watch for fog
Pleasant on Thursday and Friday; Wet weekend?
Light to sometimes moderate rain that began this morning and lasted into the midday became intermittent during the afternoon. Conditions should dry out some more this evening after a little more rain. Temperatures have exhibited little range today, with readings only slowly climbing into the mid-and-upper 50s most spots. Rainfall has been on the order of about .15"-.25", with places south and east picking up more.
Through Tonight: Showers continue in some places through late afternoon before clouds try to break this evening (in time for a nice sunset?). An additional passing shower or some drizzle is possible during the evening, but nothing major. Fresh low-level moisture and light winds will combine to create areas of fog overnight as lows range between the mid-40s and around 50.
Tomorrow (Thursday): We should have lots of sunshine through the morning before a few clouds pop up later in the day. Overall, a terrible one to waste on a Thursday... Highs should rise near 70 or into the low 70s. A very weak disturbance could trigger a shower or two sometime during the second half of the day.
More hurricanes: Yesterday I mentioned that this has been the quietest severe weather season since 2005. Could it also be the most active hurricane season since? The private forecasting group Weather Services International (WSI) has raised its outlook for the upcoming season. They now predict 16 named storms, nine hurricanes and five major (category 3 or higher) hurricanes. Todd Crawford of WSI also indicates that the forecast for the season is more likely to go up than down in any future revisions.
