Patchy fog is possible for our morning commute, but it will not be widespread. Temperatures will quickly rise with lower 80s during the mid-morning hours. Highs will top out near 90 degrees, which is cooler than the previous few days. The sky will be mostly sunny with a slight chance of an onshore shower dampening the pavement during the afternoon. The evening will be dry, making for perfect weather for your outdoor activities.
Our isolated afternoon rain chance holds into the weekend with highs in the upper 80s, feeling like the lower 90s during the afternoon. Rain chances improve early next week, with scattered showers and thunderstorms returning to the forecast. Afternoon highs early next week will still be a handful of degrees above average, but a front will approach the area toward the end of the week, meaning slightly cooler weather is possible to kick off October. As for the tropics, there is a weak tropical wave about 900 miles east of the Windward Islands. This wave will experience unfavorable conditions for development and is not of concern. – Meteorologist Andrew Gorton
