There is still a chance for us to see some strong storms this afternoon and early into the evening as the remnants from Ida clear the area. The threat is low but we still have a chance to get some isolated spin up tornadoes in our far eastern counties. Flooding rains have more or less shifted to the north and we are dealing with the lag time flooding of the larger rivers and streams that as getting the run-off from the smaller creeks. Overall, the general weather pattern can best be described as “improving”.
Moving forward into the rest of the week and into the weekend the region will be mostly clear and mild. A few pockets of fog are expected to develop regionwide overnight but other than that the weather pattern is on the quiet side.
Friday looks to be a warm day with a good deal of sunshine heading into the long holiday weekend. Saturday should be a similar day to Friday then a few clouds arrive on Sunday afternoon. Some showers are possible in the mountains but the rest of the region should see only an increase in cloud cover.
Labor Day will be quiet again with a few clouds and temps in the low 80s. In fact the next chance for some widespread rain won’t arrive until the middle of next week.
Stay safe everyone.
As for the tropics: Larry is almost at Hurricane strength, still well out over the open seas.
