MONDAY Update:  Record Warmth Today – Cooler By Mid-week

     Good Morning!   The calendar says November, but we continue to deal with summer warmth.  Yesterday’s high of 87 was nearly a record.  Today’s record high of 86 is in jeopardy.  Hang on.  Cooler air arrives by mid-week.  But, the rain prospects for the next several days looks bleak. Here’s my brief forecast discussion. 

TODAY:    Mostly sunny.  HOT & humid.  High 86.  (Record high 86 from 1986) (Normal high 73)   Northeast wind 5 to 10 mph.  Clear and quite mild tonight.  Low 65.  Sunrise this morning is 6:09 AM.  Sunset is 4:51 PM.

This map shows the cities where potential record highs are possible today from Louisiana to New Jersey.


Tuesday, Election Day will be dry and warm. High 83.   Much cooler by Wednesday High 72. Comfortable Thursday and Friday.  Mid 70’s.  Much cooler Saturday.  Breezy with highs in the 60’s.   The week ahead should be dry. 

Rainfall prospects not very good over the next 6 days over Alabama.  But, look all that heavy rain along the Southeast US coastline. 

COOLEST AIR OF THE SEASON: Get ready for some much cooler arriving this weekend. Highs will only be in the 50’s by Sunday and down near 30 on Monday morning.



Sub-tropical storm Nicole forms northeast of the Bahamas.

A disturbance approaching the Bahamas has becoming better organized.  It has been classified as Sub Tropical Storm Nicole. It could be a major problem for Florida and the Southeast coast later this week with lots of wind, waves and torrential rainfall.   Elsewhere, in the Atlantic, Invest 97-L could potentially get the name Owen later this week.

The models are generally in good agreement about Future Nicole’s movement across south Florida, to the Gulf and then looping northeastward along the Southeast U.S. coastline.

FULL LUNAR ECLIPSE TOMORROW MORNING:  Full “Blood” lunar eclipse in the wee hours of Tuesday morning.  It will be the last Full Lunar eclipse until March 2025.  The totality will last for almost and hour and a half.  Partial eclipse starts at 3:09 AM.  Full eclipse begins at 4:16 AM.  The totality ends at 5:41 AM.  Moonset at 6:15.
