Continued Warm & Pleasant
Warm temperatures continue to hold steady across the region today. It doesn't really feel like Fall is almost here, and that trend will continue into the next week. We cannot rule out a stray shower this afternoon. The weekend looks to stay dry and sunny. We could see some increasing clouds Monday through Wednesday from Hurricane Maria's proximity to the coast, however, we're expecting no direct impacts under the current forecast hurricane track.

We remain stuck in this late Summer pattern of warmth. Usually accompanied with ample sunshine and a passing chance for a stray shower. That remains the case today. Shower chances diminish Friday and through the weekend as high pressure builds across the region.
As we move into Monday, we'll likely see some increasing high clouds from Hurricane Maria as it nears the coast. A frontal system approaches to our west, but doesn't quite make it here. Hurricane Maria is not expected to make a direct impact to us, and should stay east of Hatteras and away from the eastern seaboard given the current forecast track. Tropical Storm Jose lingers in place southeast of Cape Cod and is expected to remain there through Sunday.
The warm temperatures stay with us through the middle of next week without any cold front in sight, until the latter part of next week.
