Our weather this week will be influenced by an upper air trough bringing continued cooler, temperatures. Current seasonal average highs are 70-72º. We’ll be seeing upper 60s over the next two days.

The remnants of Hurricane Ian will affect us later in the week and more likely, during the weekend. I’ll be following the models.

Current indications, based on the GFS, ECMWF and ICON models, suggest that the bulk of the rain associated with this storm will move just to our south late Saturday into Sunday. With hurricanes, anything can happen and changes are likely. Stay tuned
