A fairly quiet weather pattern to end the month of August.  T.S. Cristobal will remain far off the U.S. east coast.

Mainly clear and comfortable, patchy fog west
Lows: Mid 50s to mid 60s
Wind: ESE 5 mph
Mostly sunny with low humidity
Highs: Low 80s
Wind: E 5-10 mph
Mostly sunny, humidity remains low
Highs: Low to mid 80s
Wind: ESE 5-10 mph

The weekend has ended on a much brighter note with sunshine, comfortable temperatures, and relatively low humidity.  High pressure will take us into the last week of August bringing more of this lovely weather.  High temperatures will remain a bit below our average of 86° through Tuesday.  Even as highs climb into the upper 80s for Wednesday and Thursday, the humidity will stay fairly comfortable.  A weak cold front will slide through late Thursday, but it looks like the front will be fairly moisture starved.  Highs will drop back into the low 80s by Friday.

Looking ahead to Labor Day weekend, the weather looks pretty good.  Temperatures will be in the mid 80s with comfortable humidity.  A weak cold front may trigger a stray shower or storm by Sunday, but overall the weather should accommodate beach outings, barbeques, and outdoor plans.  We'll keep you posed!
