A wonderful weekend on tap! High pressure will keep us nice and dry. Expect mostly sunny skies Saturday with highs in the low to mid 70s. Another beautiful day for Sunday with highs in the lower 70s. Winds will begin to pick up a bit out of the northeast at 10-15 mph. We could see some nuisance tidal flooding at times of high tide Sunday afternoon.

Hurricane Irma will approach south Florida this weekend then turn north. The timing and location of this turn will determine the impacts on Florida and much of the Southeast. On the current forecast track, the core of Irma should stay to our southwest. We will most likely see some rain, wind and tidal flooding late Monday and Tuesday. We could see some rain linger into Wednesday with conditions drying out for Thursday. Highs will warm to the 80s Monday through Thursday.

Saturday: Mostly sunny and breezy. Highs in the low and mid 70s. Winds: NE 10-15 mph.

Saturday night: Partly cloudy. Lows in the upper 50s to near 60. Winds: NE around 10 mph.

Sunday: Mostly sunny with highs in the lower 70s. Breezy. Winds: NE 10-15, with gusts up to 25 mph.
