After a very active day, Friday will be windy but mainly dry. Showers & storms continue to move southward along a south of a strong cold front. It will be out of Florida by tomorrow but since the pressure gradient will be so tight, westerly winds are expected to quite gusty through the day. We'll have partly cloudy skies with highs in the low-mid 80s.
Cooler, drier air arrives Friday night with lows in the upper 60s. Don't be surprised to see a few isolated showers on Saturday as the cooler air flows over the warm Gulf water with the westerly flow. Full sunshine returns on Sunday as the winds turn to the NW 5-10mph. Very nice weather for Trick or Treat on Sunday night with temps in the 70s.
The National Hurricane Center is monitoring one area for possible development. It is a non-tropical low pressure system producing storm-force winds that is located about 350 miles south of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Strong winds
along portions of the northeastern United States coast are forecast to gradually diminish later today as the low moves eastward away from shore at about 15 mph. The low is then expected to turn southeastward toward slightly warmer waters in a few days, and it could acquire some subtropical characteristics over the weekend or early next week while over the central Atlantic.
Formation chance through 48 hours is low at 20 percent.
Formation chance through 5 days is low at 30 percent.
