So it all comes to the this? The last weekend of August. Not Labor Day Weekend, but it might as well be. You can feel it with these earlier sunsets already happening. You can't stop time. But you can live for today! Luckily the weather this weekend will be great for all of the summer lovers who are in a state of denial and need to find some good couch time to cope with the changing seasons. I know I do! I do not handle this well in case you have not noticed. Anyway, lots of sun this weekend with high 80-85 Saturday. High clouds will in crease late in the day. Partly cloudy skies Saturday night, and a bit milder with a light SW winds at the surface. A few early clouds Sunday, with skies becoming mostly sunny and a bit warm with highs in the mid 80's.
A beautiful full Supermoon will be illuminating the weekend sky. The moon is making it's closest past to the earth Saturday, just when it happens to be full. That makes it "Super". You can also call it the Sturgeon, Corn or Grain moon if you feel like it. High pressure will be close enough to New England all weekend to keep us dry, but a deck of high-mid level clouds will be streaming towards us later today through Saturday night and early Sunday. I should not amount to much. A weak front pushes through Monday with little to show for it. A big upper level ridge will control the weather in the eastern half of the nation next week allowing unseasonal warm air to build with highs in the 80's nearing 90 for much of next week. The next chance of a shower or t'storm will be next Thursday.
Lots of rain in the tropics! Latest reports from Dominica are 20 people dead from flooding and the death toll could rise. Flooding rains have crossed Hispaniola which will trigger more mudslides. TS Erika will weaken over Cuba this weekend...and could re-emerge into the Gulf of Mexico and develop back into a tropical storm once it gets over the open warm water. So much has changed in just 24 hours with Erika. It is hard to have to much confidence what will happen next. The track keeps shifting west. It is hard to tell when this trend will end. The good news is this storm is taking a beating from wind shear, and lack of warm water over land. But flooding still remains a major concern from this storm. Hurricane status appears unlikely for now....We will let you know through the weekend of any future changes in track or intensity. Have a great weekend and enjoy that Summer wind as it comes blowing in!
