  • Rain tapers off this evening
  • Hot, humid weekend
  • Henri remains off the East Coast

FRIDAY EVENING

Most storms are tapering off to the south. We’ll see clearing skies tonight with lows falling into the 60s. Some patchy fog will be possible into Saturday morning.

TROPICS

Grace appears to track towards Mexico again to end the week and will bring little to no impact to our immediate forecast. In addition, Henri remains east off the Southeast coast. It will move north parallel to the Mid-Atlantic coastline, allowing for rough waters, but it’s the Northeast that should be watching this storm closely into this weekend. Heavy flooding will be a big issue there.

Tropical Full

THIS WEEKEND

A ridge of high pressure will build through the weekend with a limited chance of rain. Afternoon highs return to the upper 80s along with humid conditions.

Temperatures climb close to 90 this weekend with a mix of sun and clouds.

Early next week, the high continues to build over the area meaning we’ll be back to hot and humid afternoons with stray showers and storms.
