Tuesday: The system responsible for overnight storms is departing. We will continue to see overcast skies with patchy fog and scattered light showers on the backside of the system today, but additional accumulation will be very light. The cold front will sweep through and lead to steady 15-20 mph winds out of the west-northwest with gusts up to 30 mph.

Wednesday: This gloomy return to the workweek will be followed with a burst of sunshine, light winds, and pleasant temperatures in the mid-60s Wednesday. Our next piece of energy will approach overnight Wednesday and bring scattered showers that will linger Thursday. These will be light in nature without a threat of severe weather. A quiet pattern will then settle in nicely for the weekend. Temperatures will remain on the cool side, especially along the shores due to a lake breeze.

Hurricane Dorian is now a category 3 with sustained winds of 120 mph. The track continues to take it along the east coast with potential landfall near North Carolina some time Thursday night, at which time it is projected to be a category 2 with sustained winds of 100 mph.
