Monday blog: Some slightly more seasonable temperatures ahead and watching the tropics -Chris

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a fantastic weekend. A little toasty on Saturday but that weak cold front helped bring temps down for Sunday.

In fact, this morning, we were upwards of 20° cooler for temperatures than we were Sunday morning. While that seems crazy, the temperatures we’re seeing are a bit more normal for this time of year, at least, for overnight lows.



We have good news for allergy sufferers as well as pollen counts continue to drop for a little while. We’re at a 6.2 out of 12 for the pollen count today and looking at a 5.6 out of 12 for tomorrow.


As we head through the rest of today we’re looking at a high of 81° which is a bit above normal for this time of year, but still pleasant and we’ll be partly cloudy.


Going into tonight, we’re more seasonable for the overnight low, dropping back down to 53° for an overnight low. Our lows will remain a bit more ‘normal’ for this time of year, but our highs will be a bit warmer than normal.


We’re also watching Hurricane Ian as it tracks towards the west coast of Florida. It’s expected to intensify to a Category 4 over the next couple of days as it moves on.


We need rain, but we don’t have any rain on the horizon anytime soon.

Your long range forecast is below.




Next Tuesday-Saturday: Heating back up and mainly dry.

October 10th-16th:  Mainly a mild week and mainly dry.  Rain chances on Wednesday.

October 17th-23rd:  A mild week with rain chances on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  Mild and mainly dry the rest of the week.
