All eyes on Sally and a late week front

Good Tuesday, everyone. We have a blast of pleasant air across the state today, but the focus is on Sally in the Gulf of Mexico and any possible impact it may have on us. Some of that moisture may team with another fall cold front to bring showers later in the week.

Let’s kick things off with what’s going on out there today. Our morning starts with the upper 40s to low 50s, so you may need a lightweight jacket. By the afternoon, it’s awesome with highs in the 70s.

Sally continues to strengthen as it heads toward a late day landfall:

Temps behind this may not get out of the 60s for highs and lows drop deep into the 40s:

The overall tropics are as active as you will ever find in the Atlantic basin. We currently have 5 named storms. FIVE:

Enjoy the day and take care.
