Sunday Evening Weather Discussion; Posted at 7:20 p.m.

A good Sunday to you! There are some big changes coming up in the weather by mid week, which includes some cooler temperatures. Meanwhile, the weather today was very nice, as highs reached the middle to upper 80s. With dry air around, temperatures will quickly cool off tonight, as lows are expected to reach the upper 50s. Clear skies will be around tonight and lots of sun for tomorrow. Clouds will be on an increase by Tuesday, with highs in the middle 80s. We could see a few showers, but the chance of rain is only 20%, so don’t expect a washout.

A strong cold front will move through the area late Tuesday night, which will bring some of the coolest weather so far this season. Highs will be in the upper 70s for Wednesday through next Saturday. Lots of sun will be around each day, with a breeze out of the northwest. With very dry air, calm winds and clear skies at night, temperatures will be heading for the upper 40s for Thursday and Friday mornings. The weather will continue to be very nice on through the weekend; highs will be in the upper 70s to lower 80s.

Hurricane Kyle has made landfall as a category 1 hurricane in Nova Scotia. Winds are sustained at 75 MPH. You certainly don’t hear of a hurricane making landfall in Canada very often, but it has made a direct hit this evening. Flooding rains and water level rises are occurring in portions of Maine and Nova Scotia as this system progresses northward. It will become extra tropical very soon as it continues its movement. There is another area in the northern Atlantic that could become a sub-tropical storm or tropical storm over the next day or so, as it tracks westward. This system doesn’t pose any threat to the US mainland, as it is expected to turn back out to sea. Elsewhere, things are relatively quiet. Be sure to join us tonight at 10 p.m. for the latest on your forecast. Have a great day!
