Weather Now: Beautiful Ending to Summer; Some Rain Arrives Monday Night

Weather

What a weekend! The weather just about as perfect as it can get around here with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. The nice weather will continue through most of Monday.

Temperatures this evening will be falling back through the 70s and 60s with overnight lows in the mid to upper 60s.

Tonight is the last night of summer! Fall officially arrives at 3:50am Monday morning.

The first day of fall will begin with sunshine and some patchy fog, especially near the coast.

Although it will be officially autumn, it’ll still feel like summer on Monday. Highs will be in the low to mid 80s with high humidity.

Expect dry skies into the evening commute with continued warm conditions.

Our next chance of rain arrives Monday night, toward midnight. Expect rain showers to develop from west to east. A few t’storms are possible early Tuesday morning, too. Most of the rain should be done by 8am on Tuesday.

TROPICS: Tracking Jerry and Karen

Jerry is well north of Puerto Rico now and is moving north at a pretty good clip but without much change in strength.

Jerry is expected to continue moving north and then northeast away from the U.S. East Coast, but we’ll continue to monitor its progress in the coming days.

Newly formed Karen is a tropical storm about to move into the southeast Caribbean.

Karen is expected to turn northward and move across the northeast Caribbean, possibly over Puerto Rico, then back out into the open Atlantic.

We’ll continue to monitor all tropical activity closely.
