Unseasonably warm temperatures will contine for the next several days.

Tonight: Mainly Clear & Mild

Lows: 70s this evening; 50s to near 60° overnight | Wind: S 5 m.p.h.

Wednesday: Partly Cloudy & Very Warm

Highs: Around 80 degrees | Wind: WSW 5-10 m.p.h.

Thursday: Partly Sunny & Still Mild

Highs: Lower 70s | Wind: ESE 5-10 m.p.h.

Scattered clouds and mild temperatures highlight our forecast for tonight. Skies will be partly cloudy tomorrow and southerly winds will help push afternoon temperatures back through the 70s to near 80 degrees. Winds will slowly start turning to the northeast and this will drop high temperatures just a bit on Thursday and Friday.

By Saturday, we will be keeping a close eye on an approaching cold front and a system that will be moving well offshore, but adjacent to the SE U.S. coast. Computer models are all over the place on what may happen late in the weekend and early next week. The strength, location, and orientation of that cold front will help determine the future of what is now Tropical Storm Sandy…currently located south of Jamaica in the Caribbean. At the very least, easterly winds will develop over the weekend transporting cool and damp air to the region. What happens to Sandy and it’s future status is still in question. But it is not out of the question that Sandy could morph into a non- tropical or hybrid storm that could affect portions of the east coast early next week. Stay tuned.
