Warmer weekend temps and tracking the tropics

Friday evening forecast

After a cloudy Friday for many, the clouds will continue to break apart tonight. We will see a big spread in morning lows, with inland areas in the 50s and 60s and coastal communities in the upper 60s.

The weekend will feature warmer weather, as sunshine returns in a big way. That sunshine will warm the area, with highs back in the mid 80s with dry conditions.

Even more warmth is ahead for Sunday, with partly cloudy skies continuing. Highs will be in the upper 80s.

Next week, we’ll be keeping a very close eye on a system currently in the Caribbean.

There are indications the system could be a hurricane, with possible impacts to Florida.

Right now, if we see impacts locally, it would likely be during the Wednesday-Thursday time frame.
