Sunny, warm and dry Thursday with comfortable temperatures in the mid-80s

What a refreshing change for Thursday! High pressure builds in as the sun shines and a comfortable breeze blows out of the northwest.

Humidity remains low with afternoon temperatures seasonable in the mid-80s. Nice weather prevails into the start of the holiday weekend.

All eyes remain on Hurricane Dorian, currently a category 1 storm pushing away from Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Dorian will spend a few days at sea, strengthening into a major hurricane by sometime Saturday. At this point the National Hurricane Center has Dorian making landfall along the central East Coast of Florida, although the whole state is on alert for this holiday weekend.

Beyond the holiday weekend, 90s returns with high temperatures near 90 degrees on Tuesday and 92 degrees on Wednesday.
