A cold front is pressing through the region today, and as that continues to occur, there is a very limited chance of a couple of isolated showers or storms. However, I anticipate the vast majority of our area will remain dry, and the chance of any one spot seeing measurable rain today is likely less than 1 in 10.
Highs today will top out in the upper 80s to lower 90s with a partly sunny sky. Lows tonight drop into the 60s.
A good-looking weekend is on tap with sunshine and highs Saturday in the 80s and Sunday's highs in the lower 90s.
The warmth marches on next week with lots of upper 80s and lower 90s for highs.
Karl is now a major hurricane, and Karl will likely continue to strengthen right up until it makes landfall on the Mexican coast late today. The system will then rapidly spin down as it encounters the mountains of Mexico, however, flooding and mudslides will then become a problem.
Igor remains a major hurricane, and will likely continue as a major hurricane as it passes very close to Bermuda Sunday night into Monday morning. Igor will still be moving relatively slowly as it impacts Bermuda, so an extended period of hurricane-force winds are likely there.
Julia continues to weaken as it heads into the open waters of the Atlantic.
Aside from wave action and rip currents, none of the systems will have a U.S. impact.
