A DRY WEATHER PATTERN WILL CONTINUE MUCH OF THE WEEK… THERE IS AN AREA OF CONCERN IN THE CENTRAL CARIBBEAN SEA THAT WILL BE WATCHED FOR TROPICAL CYCLONE DEVELOPMENT

A look at the national radar shows a lack of precipitation nationwide. This tends to happen more frequently at this time of year.┬áLarge, sprawling high pressure systems can basically shut down any chances of rain in large areas during October. High pressure settling near the Mid-Atlantic Coast will keep us dry for most and probably all of this week. Temperatures will trend upwards a bit during the mid-week period as the high settles off the coast. Meanwhile, in the tropical Atlantic, there is an area of disturbed weather in the central Caribbean Sea. At the time of this writing, the National Hurricane Center gives this system a 70% chance of developing over the next few days. If a tropical cyclone develops, its name will be Sandy and this could be a memorable storm for some folks due to its anticipated very slow movement. That’s it for now. Enjoy the fantastic fall weather while it lasts!
