A NORTHEASTERLY WIND WILL KEEP TEMPERATURES BELOW NORMAL FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS… HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING INTO THE MID-ATLANTIC STATES IS EXPECTED TO BRING PLEASANT WEATHER ON SUNDAY… A TROPICAL DISTURBANCE NEAR HISPANIOLA WILL HAVE TO BE WATCHED

There will be lots of clouds around today (Saturday) and a northeasterly wind will keep temperatures below normal. There will be some showers here and there but many areas should remain dry today. High pressure slowly building southwestward into the Mid-Atlantic States will bring rather nice weather for our region beginning Sunday and it should last into the mid-week period. The big question is whether we will see any effects of what is now a tropical disturbance north of the island of Hispaniola. This system is expected to become better organized as it moves away from the mountainous island. It is expected to move near the Bahama Islands but there is a lot of uncertainty regarding its eventual track and intensity. Will it move close enough to the U.S. to bring rain and wind? Right now, forecasters aren’t sure. Wouldn’t it be something if Labor Day weekend was impacted by a tropical system just like July 4th was? It could turn out to sea but the computer models are all over the place regarding its track later next week. You should monitor this system as the situation unfolds… Regarding our current weather, we’ll have a northeasterly wind the next few days which means that there will not be any heat waves anytime soon. We should have more sunshine on Sunday and Monday. The weather later in the week depends on the eventual track of the aforementioned tropical system. That’s it for now. Thanks for reading and have a great day!
