Temperatures will drop fast this evening for high school football fans and players. We’ll go from the mid 60s at kickoff to the mid-upper 50s by the end of the game. Winds remain light and skies will be clear into the evening. The only thing we may see overnight is dew on the grass and some patchy fog.

The weather has turned much cooler for the weekend and very comfortable as the Canadian air arrived behind the strong cold front. Skies will continue to remain clear through Saturday afternoon.

If you like the fall air, you’re in luck. We anticipate very few changes as we enter the weekend. The only difference may be a few more occasional clouds along with a slight uptick in overnight temperatures.

Even then, our daytime highs will be very close to late-September averages, reaching the mid 70s. Overnight lows will slip to the upper 40s. Another cool front will move through late Saturday night bringing a few clouds and reinforcing the gorgeous weather.

Lots of sunshine this weekend with highs in the 70s.

TROPICS

We continue to watch an active tropical map of potential storm development. Tropical Storm Sam has developed deep in the Atlantic. Sam is expected to become a major hurricane and take its time traveling over the next week. At this time, it is too soon to say where it is heading, but it is one to watch!

Sam is expected to become a major hurricane and will be watched closely.
