Weekend forecast: Calm after the storm

/ September 30, 2022 at 10:27 PM

We have a calm and comfortably warm weekend of weather ahead, which will help aid recovery efforts after the lashing Ian gave our area on Friday. We’ll have very seasonally appropriate starts to each day, with lows in the mid-50s on Saturday and lows in the upper 50s on Sunday, followed by highs getting into the upper 70s in the afternoon. Dewpoints will be comfortable, generally running in the upper 50s to low 60s.

There’s been some concerns about lingering tidal effects from Ian today, but offshore flow will keep us well out of jeopardy of broaching any coastal flood thresholds over the next several days. The only lingering effect will be a moderate risk of rip currents through the weekend, so be aware of this if you’re thinking of getting into the Atlantic waters.

Overall, aside from a slight chance of a shower on Monday, we have several days to dry out to start October. This will be quite beneficial — recovering from a storm can be difficult, especially if you have sustained damage, and the last thing you want is more bad weather on top.
