Saturday looks like a nice summer day with warm temps and a bit of humidity, but nothing crazy. Expect lots of sunshine with some clouds around in the afternoon. Breezes will be light and variable and then shift from the south during the afternoon at 5-10 mph. Inland highs should be in the mid to upper 80s with mid 80s along the south coast.

Sunday should be a mostly dry day with highs in the mid 80s. There will be a chance of some showers and thunderstorms by the late afternoon and evening.

Humidity will also be on the rise late Sunday as a warm front pushes through.


We continue to watch Hurricane Isaias. This storm is expected to undergo fluctuations in intensity in the next 2 days as it turns northwest then north up the Florida coastline.

It is possible that the storm moves up the eastern seaboard (or right along the coast) and moves into New England. It’s too early to talk about specifics as far as rain, wind and storm surge, but all three factors are on the table.

We’ll continue to watch Isaias closely. By the way, the storm is pronounced ees-ah-EE-ahs.
