Sunny skies and a warmup for the end of the week. We will warm to the 50s on Thursday and 60s on Friday with mostly sunny skies. Sunshine will continue for the weekend with upper 60s on Saturday and low 70s on Sunday.

Tropical Update

Iota bringing flash flooding and mud slides to parts of Central America. Iota will move farther inland across northern Nicaragua today, and move across southern Honduras tonight before dissipating near El Salvador early Wednesday.
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 75 mph with higher gusts. Iota should weaken to a tropical storm this afternoon, a tropical depression this evening, and degenerate into a remnant low pressure area on Wednesday.

A broad area of low pressure could form in a couple of days over the southwestern Caribbean Sea. Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for slow development, and a tropical depression could form by the weekend while the system moves slowly west to WSW across the southwestern Caribbean Sea.
* Formation chance through 48 hours: Low (0%)
* Formation chance through 5 days: Medium (40%)
