PM Update: Near perfection through tomorrow
Another heat wave on the horizon?
A cold front that has pushed through the area is helping drier air filter in on a sometimes gusty northwest wind. So far we're not seeing a lot of cooler air, but that will follow tonight into tomorrow. Highs today are reaching mainly into the mid-80s under plenty of sun. The next day or two are looking pretty amazing before the thermometer tries to make another run at 90+ thereafter.
Through Tonight: A glorious evening is ahead as temperatures drop back into the 70s prior to sunset. Under mostly clear skies, a taste of fall will be in the air overnight as lows dip to the upper 50s in the suburbs to the middle 60s downtown.
Tomorrow (Friday): Friday's the type of day most have probably been longing for during the heat of this summer. Mostly sunny skies and a light wind from the north combine to create a delightful day with highs rising into the lower 80s most spots.
Tropics: After what many would consider a slow start to the hurricane season, things are now hopping in the open Atlantic. In addition to Hurricane Danielle, Tropical Storm Earl formed yesterday (bringing the season back above climatological norms). If that's not enough, a 3rd wave that recently exited Africa appears to have good potential to become Fiona. So far it seems all of these systems will want to curve north into the Atlantic but both Earl and Fiona will still need to be watched for interests closer to home. Watch it all in our Hurricane Tracking Center.
