Weather Now: Dry through Sunday morning; Showers for later in the day

News

Good evening, it’s overall a much quieter day compared to yesterdays weather. We’ve been stuck in the clouds all day as a weak low pressure system passes offshore. There wasn’t much rain locally from that system, besides some early morning showers and storms on the islands.

As we look ahead to this evening it’ll be a mild and dry night. Lows will drop to the upper 50s and low 60s under partly cloudy skies.

Sunday morning will be dry and warm. Temperatures will be in the 60s to near 70. I do expect for there to be some sunshine starting off the day but clouds are expected to be a factor once again.

Towards the afternoon, we’ll warm up to the upper 70s and low 80s. Skies will continue to increase clouds as the day progresses and a spot shower or two is possible.

As we head into the later afternoon and evening hours of Sunday, notice a batch of showers and even an embedded heavier downpour or thunderstorm is possible. Keep an eye to the sky for a storm and have the umbrella nearby in case needed for a short time. However, I would not cancel any outdoor activities.

Overall, it’s a decent beach day all things considered. There will be breaks of sun between clouds (bring the sunscreen). You can still get burned through the clouds and the UV index will be very high on Sunday. If you’re planning on entering the water, there will be a moderate rip current risk so it’s best to swim near a lifeguard.
