An approaching cold front will trigger off showers and heavier t-storms through Wednesday morning. Some of the storms will be accompanied by lightning, heavy downpours, some flooding and strong gusty winds. Except for a leftover shower, Wednesday afternoon should be mainly dry.
Highs Wednesday will be near or around 80. Winds will be out of the SW to NW late in the day 5-10 mph.
Skies will clear Wednesday night and turning less humid, with lows around 60 or in the low 60s.
Drier, much less humid air will build in, and result in plenty of sunshine and lower humidity for Thursday and Friday with highs mainly in the 70s.
Meanwhile, we’ll continue to follow the progress of Hurricane Lee (currently located well to our SE out in the Atlantic Ocean, well east of the Bahamas). It’s expected to continue heading slowly NW before turning northward (well east of the US Coast) by Wednesday evening. Right now, it looks as if Lee will pass about 300 miles east of the Mid Atlantic coast late Friday night and Saturday. However, due to its large size, there will be increasingly large waves and swells, dangerous rip currents and beach erosion at the shore by Friday and continuing through next weekend.
