Dry and Less Humid Through Saturday

Hurricane Dorian could effect our area by mid next week

It’s taken a little while, but that drier air mass steered in by high pressure to our north finally takes hold Thursday bringing less humid conditions to the area through Saturday. We will definitely feel the effects during the overnight hours as it will be quite pleasant over the next several nights. We’ll also stay dry in terms of rain. Moisture creeps back in Sunday and so do our rain chances that could increase to scattered showers on Labor Day.

Hurricane Dorian continues to strengthen as he pulls away from the Virgin Islands and heads out into the warm waters of the Atlantic.  The latest track has Dorian making landfall Sunday into Monday as a Category 3 (major) hurricane with max sustained winds over 111 mph. Location puts him southeast of Orlando near Palm Bay, but the cone of uncertainty stretches from Homestead to south of Savannah. This, of course, could change.

Still too early to tell what effect, if any, Dorian will have on our area. The possibility exists for rain and gusty winds to reach us by the middle of next week. Definitely something we’ll be keeping a close watch on.

Have a great evening!
