Sunday was mostly sunny, warm and dry once again. Temperatures rose into the mid 80s with
lows in the mid 60s. Dew points started out lower (upper 50s) but later rose to the 70° mark.
Now at 0736 we have clear skies with temperatures in the mid 60s and the dew points in the
lower 60s. The Saturday minimum temperature from the VP2 in the shelter on the ground below
my balcony (64.7°) was recorded at 0421 while the maximum temperature (85.7°) was recorded
at 1457. Dew point temps ranged from 59° up to 70°. Relative humidity values were higher
than yesterday (89% – 54%). Barometric values were about the same as yesterday, ranging
from 30.12″ at 0912 down to 30.02″ at 1704.
Remember now you can get the ground-based VP2 data on Weatherlink. You can access the
data through http://www.weatherlink.com/user/walrusman444
We now have clear skies with a few scattered high cirrus clouds with temperatures in the mid
60s at 0658 Monday. Sunny to partly cloudy skies will dominate our weather Monday through
Wednesday with very warm and dry conditions continuing. High temps should be in the mid-upper
80s with lows in the mid 60s. Some of those clouds will be from the outside dying bands of
weakening Hurricane Maria, currently a CAT 1 well east of the Florida coast heading north.
Thursday should turn a bit cooler, with highs in the upper 70s and lows in the low-mid 50s.
Cooler air will be working its way in by the end of the week and into the weekend as we
transition from September into October with rain hopefully starting to fall again at the beginning
of next week.
On Weatherbug at 0736 the radar is clear north and east of Florida and Alabama at this time.
