Good Morning! A powerful storm system is developing in the Gulf of Mexico. It will not only dominate our forecast this weekend, but it will be quite harsh for Florida, the Southeast coast, and up the Eastern seaboard. The risk of rain will be increasing this afternoon. Rain is likely tonight. The heaviest rain, by far will be east and southeast of Alabama. No severe weather is expected, but it will become windy. Sunday, showers taper off in the morning, with the sun returning in the afternoon. Much cooler air will follow the storm system, Monday through Wednesday. Expect a freeze Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday night. The days will be quite chilly and the nights will be cold.

Yesterday was just a beautiful day in Punta Cana. Lots of sunshine and tropical breezes.
OH BOY! Last night was Lobster Night at a Restaurant called WAVES. Richie was thrilled! 😊
Today is my final FULL day in paradise. They have a huge water Park here that I will investigate. Largest in the Caribbean. I have a mid-summer tan. I fly back to the United States Sunday afternoon.
