Clear Columbus Day weekend in store

Just over a week ago, forecast models remained uncertain about an intensifying Category 3 hurricane near the Bahamas. Luckily, Joaquin scooted harmlessly into the Atlantic and out of our weather forecast. By now the former hurricane has weakened into a non-tropical system, and it is expected to bringing gusty winds and rain to Spain.

The main local headline for this week is an approaching cold front that will bring showers to the area tomorrow. Southerly winds ahead of the front will kick highs into the upper 60s°F. Although the front will bring precipitation, expect relatively mild weather to continue into next week. This weekend will feature clear skies and highs around 60°F. By Columbus Day, highs will approach the 70°F mark as high pressure builds in.
