An upper-level area of high pressure will build over the Eastern states and promote dry air across the region. Expect plenty of sunshine with warm afternoons along with mostly clear and comfortable nights right into the weekend. Highs will be in the 80s with lows in the 60s. Enjoy!
The average temperature for this month is currently 2.8 degrees below normal. This will change with above average temperatures expected into next week. We are only at half of our monthly rainfall so far. But we only need about 2 inches of rain to catch up, it won't be the next few days.

Jose will continue to generate hazardous high seas as well as dangerous surf and rip currents up and down the Eastern Seaboard. Outer bands with occasional wind gusts of 30 mph will occur across southeast New England today, mainly near the coastline. Cape Cod and the islands of Massachusetts will continue to experience the brunt of strongest wind gusts, possibly reaching 50 mph on occasion. Coastal flooding can occur around times of high tide. Meanwhile, Hurricane Maria made landfall as an extremely dangerous Category 4 hurricane near Yabucoa, Puerto Rico, around 6:15 a.m. EDT Wednesday, with maximum-sustained winds of 155 mph. Maria weakened as it crossed over the island dropping to a category 2, but has strengthened as of early Thursday morning and is now a Category 3 hurricane with maximum sustained winds around 115 mph. After battering Puerto Rico, Maria will skirt the northern
coastline of Hispaniola today, and while the strongest winds will remain offshore the system will still produce wind gusts of 60-80 mph along the northeast coast. The bigger issue, however, will be the threat posed by heavy rainfall. Life-threatening flooding and mudslides will be a major concern as Maria pass by to the north.

Have a great day,

Steve Stewart
