Increasing sunshine today; Rain chances tonight

  • How much rain will Hurricane Irma send our way?

Temperatures will begin responding to sunnier weather by topping out in the low 80s during the afternoon. The humidity is back for several days too. It will be muggy tonight with lows in the mid 60s.

The cloud cover from the storm would keep the temperatures down as the high on Tuesday was expected to be 74 and the high on Wednesday was predicted to be 73.

- Weekend looks pretty good and summery for the last official weekend of summer. It will not be widespread but just expect scattered, off and on showers through the morning. A sprinkle may work as far south as Alexandria. But eventually the rain axis of Irma creeps northward by this evening and spins around Central Indiana for about 24 hours. One of those disturbances will move into the Carolinas late today, so I anticipate a few afternoon and evening showers.

Meteorologists also say Hurricane Jose, now north of the Bahamas, does not pose an immediate threat to the Carolinas. It's weakened a bit again today and now winds are 75mph, a minimal hurricane. There is a very weak steering current as of now which keeps Jose around. Wind shear values are moderate, so only minor fluctuations in strength are expected.

We're watching another tropical system, Jose, which is spinning in the Atlantic Ocean.

Irma, which made landfall Saturday in southwest Florida, is weakening and will track through Georgia into northern Alabama before pivoting near western Tennessee and heading toward us.
