Looking towards another mild and humid night overnight with lows in the upper 60s. Clouds will also start to build to more partly and mostly cloudy conditions with patchy fog possible at the coast in the pre-dawn hours.

Tuesday morning will start with more clouds than sun with temperatures quickly rising from the upper 60s to low 80s as we head towards noontime. We’ll have another hot and humid day on tap with lots of sunshine.

The afternoon hours will be very warm with high temps close to 90, coupled with high dew points continuing the muggy feel we’ve had in the air the last few days.

Ocean, Bay & Beach // A look at the conditions by the coast »

Tuesday’s beach forecast looks pleasant and mild with temperatures in the upper 70s to low 80s during the heat of the day. Rip current risks are returning with surf around 4 feet. Please be mindful, that with the lifeguards no longer on duty, be extra cautious when swimming unattended.

Temperatures are going to continue to trend well above average well into this week with the potential to reach the low 90s. More on average temps will make a reappearance towards the end of the week with a chance for rain returning.

Humidity will continue to be a factor as well over the next several days with high dewpoints.


Meteorological autumn has begun, so, let’s take a look back at meteorological summer. Meteorologists break the seasons up into chunks of months to make it easier to keep track of stats. Astronomical fall actually begins on September 23.

It certainly was a rainy summer!

Thought it rained a lot? You’re right. 47 out of the 92 days in meteorological summer had at least a trace of rain. That’s more than half the summer days with at least a trace of rain!

No surprise that it has been a cooler-than-normal summer. We didn’t hit 90° once this summer (or at any point this year).
