The biggest change for Wednesday is the temperature. Highs today will only reach 70, an almost 20-degree drop from the two days prior.
The temporary heat is no more, but not before we tied a record high yesterday at 87 degrees.
As is often the case in fall, the pattern is prone to shift rapidly, and we’ll be seeing that most of the rest of this week.
If you’ve got plans to head to south Florida in the next few days, keep an eye on Hurricane Paula. This has been a strange little storm, developing very near the Honduras coast, and now tracking north and east towards the Yucatan and Cuba in the next 48 hours. There’s a bit more uncertainty with the track outside of that time frame, and the Keys and Everglades aren’t out of the cone of uncertainty just yet.
A cold front passed through overnight, and some broken clouds are lingering over the area this morning. High pressure behind this front will bring some clearing, before a low currently situated over the Tennessee-Alabama-Mississippi region falls apart and gets absorbed by a stronger system developing near the Great Lakes. As it tracks eastward, a second low forms along the North Carolina coast, which tracks north and deepens into a strong Nor’easter for New England and the Canadian Maritime provinces.
The biggest change for Wednesday is the temperature. Highs today will only reach 70, an almost 20-degree drop from the two days prior. Skies will stay partly cloudy today, with winds diminishing some as the front moves farther south before stalling out. Lows tonight will fall into the mid 50s overnight. The clouds will increase again, with the chance of some showers again tonight.
The clouds and rain continue for Thursday, as another front approaches from the west and the low along the Atlantic coast begins to intensify and track north. The potential for some isolated thunderstorms will creep in as well, with the rain coming to an end in the evening and overnight hours as the low moves off to the north. High temperatures tomorrow will only reach the mid 60s, with overnight lows in the low 40s.
The weekend will bring high pressure back to the region, with partly to mostly sunny skies and seasonable temperatures. I’ll have an update and Saturday football forecasts on Friday.
