Dry End to Week, Dorian Approaches


A frontal boundary is infiltrating the area this morning, bringing drier air and more pleasant conditions. With the lack of cloud cover as opposed to the past several days, highs will be back up into the upper 80s to lower 90s, which is actually around average for this time of year. The drier air also equals cooler overnight lows with widespread 60s expected both tomorrow and Friday mornings.

A slight chance for showers and storms returns for the Labor Day weekend as moisture returns to the area, but the biggest question will come later in the weekend as Tropical Storm Dorian approaches from the Atlantic coast. Forecasts currently have the storm reaching the east coast of Florida on Monday as a hurricane; where the storm goes once it makes landfall is highly in question. Where it goes also will have a huge impact on our weather, with everything ranging from heavy rain and strong winds to no rainfall at all if the storm recurves into the Atlantic. Much more refinement will be done to the holiday weekend forecast dependent on Dorian’s path. Miller and I will give you the latest on the storm throughout the rest of the week.
