Rainy Wednesday, cool and gorgeous weekend

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Rain chances most likely in the morning, with clearing in the west by afternoon.

COOL AND GLOOMY WEDNESDAY: Showers are likely for a good portion of Wednesday, especially for our eastern counties, going throughout the morning and into the afternoon. Highs out east don’t leave the 60s, where we may see a few low 70s out west with some late afternoon sunshine. Keep the umbrella for work either way with a light north wind.

Temperatures feeling GORGEOUS heading into the weekend!

Lots of sunshine for the weekend!

CLEARING OUT FOR THE WEEKEND: Winds stay out of the north for the majority of the next several days, keeping temperatures feeling VERY comfortable and humidity levels lower than we’ve felt the past few months. Bottom line, get out and enjoy the weekend!  A shower or two are possible Thursday, but the entire weekend looks beautiful with mostly sunny skies, a light wind and highs topping out around 70.

Possible tracks of Hurricane Irma AS OF 2:20PM Tuesday. These WILL change over a dozen times heading into the weekend. IF Irma heads our way, she would bring us off-and-on moderate rainfall.

EYEING IRMA IN THE 7-DAY: This is likely to change, but based on the current guidance by a couple of models, we could see some rain and heavy cloud cover left over from Hurricane Irma by next Tuesday. This would just be moderate-to-occasionally-heavy rain, nothing too crazy with the current forecast. Off-and-on showers would be it with current guidance. Stay tuned for updating paths, as this is way too far in advance for the track of a hurricane.

Have a great one!
