A stray shower is possible, but most areas will be dry. By the weekend, though, temperatures will be warming up a bit. In fact, on Saturday we’ll be in the lower 80s with a slight chance of showers possible. Some areas will be in the mid 80s on Sunday under partly sunny skies. Temperatures will cool back into the mid 70s next week. The first day of fall, by the way, is Monday.

Tropical Storm Edouard will rapidly weaken over the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean over the next few days as a result of cool ocean temperatures and increasing wind shear. While we will see no direct impacts from Edouard, there will be an increase in the swell at the ocean along the East Coast, meaning the rip risk will likely be heightened at the beach.
