Long Holiday Weekend
Posted by Vivian Gonzalez
For some of you this is a long weekend and boy is it going to be a nice one!
On Saturday look for a slightly better chance of seeing isolated sea breeze storms out West. By Sunday an area of high pressure will grab firm control over the Southeast United States and make way for lots of sunshine and bring in drier air. Therefore, look for mostly dry conditions and maybe a shower along the coast. High temperatures will be running at seasonal levels into the low 90s. Overnight lows will range in the middle to upper 70s. This pattern will be around through Labor Day Monday. A change will take place by the middle of the week where high pressure will weaken enough to produce scattered showers and storms each afternoon.
1) Leslie is almost a hurricane. Looks like it could become a category one hurricane some time on Saturday. The latest forecast track shows that Leslie could come real close to Bermuda by the end of next week as a category one hurricane. Bermuda should be watching Leslie very closely.
2) Kirk is gradually weakening. It is still a category one hurricane. Sustained winds are at 75 mph.
Kirk is moving up higher in latitude and interacting with some strong upper-level winds and colder waters. This should spell the end of it over the opens waters of the Northern Atlantic as early as Sunday afternoon.
Have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend South Florida!
