Summertime warmth sticks around into the first weekend of fall, and eyes remain on the tropics with Jose and Maria.
Lingering humidity and continued warmth with highs in the 80s will bring the risk of a few afternoon showers from Wednesday through Friday.
Brief downpours are possible, but no widespread heavy rain is expected and most Friday night football games appear okay at this point.
Conditions dry out over the weekend, but highs stay in the 80s as we begin the first few days of fall. Next week starts out dry and warm as well.
IN THE TROPICS, Jose is still a tropical storm in the northern Atlantic with slow movement and gradual weakening expected over the next five days.
Maria is a dangerous, major hurricane bearing down on the island of Puerto Rico, making landfall as a category 4 storm with winds of 155 mph near Yabucoa, PR early Wednesday morning. It will continue moving northwest before turning northward over the weekend.
