Heavy rain and storms move in today, much cooler Friday


Windy conditions expected in the coming days

A strong cold front approaches the area this morning. By late-morning/early-afternoon, heavy rain and thunderstorm activity will begin to move in. Expecting very gusty winds which could lead to isolated power outages along with the heavy rain that could lead to ponding on our roadways. High temperatures of the day will happen around lunchtime with the gusty winds from the southwest warming us to the mid 70s with very humid conditions. Once the front begins to push through, winds will shift and begin to come in from the northwest. As we clear out overnight, temperatures will drop quickly with lows in the 40s by tomorrow morning. It will stay breezy overnight so we may feel even cooler.

Autumn officially arrives at 9:04 PM tonight.

The cold front will also guide Hurricane Fiona out to see and away from the eastern seaboard. While we are spared any major impacts from Fiona, this very large storm will produce big waves and dangerous rip currents on Friday and into the start of the weekend. A HIGH SURF ADVISORY in effect for Friday, so surfers and even spectators need to use caution. Some beach erosion possible as well.

Friday will feature more sunshine for our first full day of Autumn. Expect breezy and chilly conditions with highs only in the upper 50s. Winds will be gusting from the northwest 20-30MPH at times. Overnight will stay dry, breezy and chilly with lows down into the low to mid 40s by Saturday morning. Saturday stays sunny, breezy and cool with highs in the mid 60s. Back into the low 70s on Sunday with partly sunny conditions.
