Fall weather holding on

Temperatures will gradually warm as the week progresses.


Today and Tonight: Tuesday will bring abundant sunshine with a high temperature in the mid 80s. Winds will be light and easterly at about 5mph. Once again, the night will cool down considerably with lows in the upper 50s. Up Next: Wednesday will run very similar to Tuesday. For the end of the week, temperatures will begin to come up a little bit as some humidity returns to the area. Look for highs in the upper 80s and lows in the mid 60s. Still though, skies are expected to stay mostly clear. The next nominal chance for a shower comes over the weekend—but keep watering those fall lawns and gardens.

The Tropics: Nicole is holding on as a tropical storm in the western Atlantic and is now threatening the island of Bermuda, but is not a threat to the U.S. mainland. Nicole could potentially become a Category 1 Hurricane today and make a direct hit on Bermuda sometime on Thursday.

THE SCIENCE:Forecast Discussion: Zonal flow will persist in the upper levels through the remainder of the week. High pressure in the Northeastern U.S. will maintain surface winds out of the east and eventually southeast allowing a gradual return of some humidity and slight warming of temperatures. Overall though, the two features will lead to mainly clear skies and no shot at any rain. By the weekend, a shortwave trough moving across the southern third of the country may bring an isolated shower, but with deep atmospheric moisture remaining very low, this chance will be minimal and likely limited to the coastal areas. High and low temperatures will run about five degrees above average from Thursday into early next week.
