Weekend Weather and Tropical Update

Tired of the wedge yet?  That east wind that brought in the clouds and cooler air yesterday is sticking with us for a big part of the weekend.  We will continue with weather today that will be very similar to what we had yesterday.  Expect a good coverage of clouds with only a few thin spots in the clouds at times to allow just a few peeks of sun here and there. 

That east wind brings in a shallow layer of cool air at the surface.  That will keep our temps in the lower 70s today.  Our high yesterday was 72.  The wedge will be slow to break.  I expect the clouds to hold with us Sunday.  We may have a few more breaks in the clouds Sunday which will help temperatures to get up to 75.

Do you realize this is the first time in a month that we haven't had a named storm in the Atlantic basin?  Maria quickly moved to the north and east yesterday and became "extra-tropical."  There is no other named storm in the Atlantic now.  There is a disturbance coming off the coast of Africa that does have potential for development.  It's really far away, though.  It's something to watch in the week ahead to see if it strengthens.  The next storm will be named Ophelia.
