thanks for watching a meteorologist, Jacqueline Thomas, heading through the day. Today we saw pleasant conditions, a good amount of sunshine and warm temperatures as we climbed into the mid and even upper eighties. In some spots through tonight, low temperatures will drop back mainly into the sixties overnight and we will see mainly clear skies, especially along the coast tonight. Then, as we head into Sunday, I expect increasing clouds and Sunday night there will be the chance for a shower or thunderstorm, mainly late and I think tomorrow, likely just a couple degrees cooler than what we saw today, but still approaching the low eighties. Here’s what we’ve got in terms of the storm tracker. As we head through tonight into Sunday, we’re going to stay dry, but you’ll notice those increasing clouds during the day tomorrow and then a chance for a few showers or even thunderstorms as we head through Sunday night. And this is what the separate area of low pressure swinging through with a warm front and then eventually a cold front as well. That is separate from S I E. S, which, of course, we have been tracking and will continue to track through the remainder of the weekend. So by Monday night we get a break, we get some quiet conditions and then as we head into Tuesday, that’s when we could start to see the potential for tropical rains to work its way into our area. And the potential at this point is for heavy rainfall. Now, we also have to keep a close eye on the track in terms of any possibility for strong winds or flooding concerns too. But for right now, Tropical Storm S I. E. S is expected to continue to track up along the Eastern Seaboard. And the latest track, as of the 5 p.m. advisory, has the main track shifted just a little bit further inland. And if we continue to see that could bring some stronger winds to the coast. So something will have to watch, of course, very closely. And, of course, the cone of uncertainty here, meeting that the center of that storm could be anywhere within that cone as we head towards Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. At this point, potential rainfall amounts could be in the three to even four inch range across our area. So definitely something to keep a close eye on at this point is important to just keep monitoring the forecast and, as we get a bit closer, will be able to better fine tune any of those potential impacts. But the eight day forecast taking us through the rest of our weekend again tomorrow, a mainly dry day. But at night we could see a shower thunderstorm that could linger into Monday morning in the mountains and then Tuesday and Wednesday. Impact whether expected and tracking the tropics with the potential for heavy rainfall, and then also keeping an eye on any possibility for strong winds for the middle of next week as well. All things to say yes.
