Just About Perfect
Late-summer conditions will hang-on just a while longer as we enjoy abundant sunshine and temperatures running more than 5-degrees above normal all week. Really the only chance for rain this week comes in the form of a stray pop-up PM shower Wednesday through Friday. Otherwise, skies will be mostly sunny/mostly clear through the period.

It’s all about high pressure this week as we enjoy abundant sunshine through the period with those pleasantly warm late-season temperatures. Temperatures (both highs and lows) will change little from day-to-day.
A weak, nondescript backdoor cold front will sag into the area on Friday (the first official day of fall). Its only real effect might be to pop-up an afternoon shower. Thereafter, more high pressure will envelop the region making for another fabulous outdoors weekend.
In the tropics, Hurricane Jose is well east of the Mid-Atlantic coast generating some big waves and dangerous rip currents. It will be meandering in the vicinity for several more days as it slowly weakens. Dangerous Hurricane Maria is on course for a Puerto Rico engagement on Wednesday. From there it heads towards the southeastern Bahamas and then off the Southeastern U.S. coast. With any luck, Maria will track out to sea without a direct strike on the mainland U.S.
