Yet again, afternoon high temperatures soared way above the average high for this time of year and peaked at 95. It was the 68th day at or above 90 degrees for 2019, still well shy of the record 88 days.
Look for a generous supply of sunshine all weekend long and some unseasonal heat to go along with it as highs will continue to hover around 90 degrees which is solidly above the average high of 84 at this point in September.
As of the 7:00 p.m. hour, Dorian continues to thrash across the northern Bahamas wreaking total destruction in many areas across Great Abaco and now moving over Grand Bahama and toward Freeport. Maximum sustained winds remain at 185 mph with incredible gusts to 225 mph.
Sunshine will again dominate on Saturday with tolerable humidity levels and highs in the mid to upper 80s. While the humidity level will gradually rise, similar temperatures are expected for the rest of the holiday weekend with low rain chances in the forecast.
After showers and storms erupted across our 22 county region Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will see fewer storms but by no means can we rule them out in your area as pockets of rain and storms will certainly reappear.
Things will change a bit Wednesday as a weak front will arrive and likely trigger a few additional showers and storms during the afternoon and evening hours, but we’re still not expecting widespread activity.
