After more clouds than sunshine on Friday from a developing storm system, better weather is on the horizon this weekend as another strengthening shot of drier air arrives behind a weak front this Saturday.
This will provide plenty of sunshine and comfortable humidity, although temperatures will be a bit hot for this time of year, reaching values in the mid to upper 80s both afternoons.
Low temperatures will be on the cool side both mornings, ranging from the upper 60s to mid 70s in most locations, which is actually below average.
Expect lots of sunshine and a light northwest breeze this Saturday.
Some higher clouds will move in during Sunday, but clear skies and fine weather conditions are still expected.
That will continue into Monday as high pressure remains under control and highs in the mid to upper 80s are still warmer than normal.
Starting Tuesday and continuing into next week, our winds will shift more from the northeast than the northwest. This will result in spotty showers and near typical temperatures with highs in the mid 80s and lows in the mid 70s.
It will also be windy and east coast beaches are likely to experience dangerous sea conditions and a high risk of rip currents.
Any day will see a chance of spotty showers, with a 20% chance of rain, but there could be a few more showers on Tuesday as moisture blows on land, so the chance of rain on Tuesday is up to 30%. In any case, plenty of sunshine and a dry season are still forecast.
In the tropics, Hurricane Tammy is currently near Dominica and is expected to bring hurricane conditions and heavy rain to the Leeward Islands as it moves northwest into the night today. Then it should curve towards the sea and become weaker beyond it.
