Today's Forecast Image

A strong and fast-moving cold front is poised to deliver a dose of cooler temperatures by the middle parts of this week. The front could also engineer a solid or broken line of showers and gusty storms early in the week. Nice and tranquil weather appears likely for the latter parts of the week.

MONDAY NIGHT FORECAST DETAILS: As the front makes its closest approach, expect increasing odds for showers as the evening and night progresses. Be alert: a strong, gusty thunderstorm may even mix in. Balmy south winds of mainly a healthy 15 to 20 mph will likely keep temperatures from falling much below 70.

TUESDAY FORECAST DETAILS: The front and its attendant clouds and showers will likely decrease between morning and midday. Partly sunny afternoon skies will marry with light westerly breezes so as to allow temperatures to spike into the 70s to even possibly briefly 80s before a substantial cool-down kicks-in Tuesday night.

EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: Dry weather is likely for Wednesday straight through the weekend. Expect nippy overnight and early morning temperatures in the 40s and 50s in this period. The coolest daytimes ought to be Wednesday and Thursday, when 60s are likely for highs. 70s should be able to mix back in thereafter.

TROPICS: The bruising 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season has, to date, featured 15 total named storms including ten hurricanes and six major hurricanes. Thankfully, new tropical storm development is not likely anywhere in the Atlantic Basin - including the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea - Monday or Tuesday.
