Warm again with temperatures approaching the 90s. Mostly sunny. Overnight, lows will reach the mid 60s under clear skies.

Another repeat today. We start the morning off slightly warmer and still sticky. By the afternoon, the high temperatures will reach the upper 90 under clear skies. With the slow approach of a front, we'll feel some slightly drier air filter in. Unfortunately we won't reach the 50s like last week, but we will approach it. Rain stays away through the next 7 days. In fact, we'll stay pretty sunny!

Hurricane Matthew is clinging to east Florida. The official forecast shows that the storm very likely will loop west, and orient itself back toward The Bahamas. In fact, they are under another Tropical Storm Warning. It certainly weakens a lot at this point, but it's not entirely impossible that this tongue of moisture could enter the Gulf. It's too early if this will even happen. My professional opinion is that it may meander near The Bahamas, but I think it will eventually move east out to sea as a ridge of high pressure builds over our area protecting us from Matthew.
