Clearing expected behind departing subtropical system

REST OF TODAY/TONIGHT: A subtropical systems will barely get its act together before moving away later today and tonight. It will turn breezy, and we will clear up from west to east later today/tonight as a result. Who likes the song “I can see clearly now?”

As the day progress winds will pick up out of the southwest and eventually northwest, which will clear up any lingering showers or low clouds. The winds will not bring cooler air, however. This is not a big storm system off the coast to cause mass migration of air masses.

Instead it will be warm into Monday and beyond. Record highs? Probably for some in the Midwest, but not for us. We will just remain warm and sticky for October.

We are not sure how long this will last, but being that it’s October, we could get a temporary cool shot after the warmth. Not hot enough to keep the pool open! Many are done for the year, unless they live in Florida.
