Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast
Partly cloudy overnight with lows in the 50s. High tide at Sewells Point is 1 AM which will bring some minor tidal flooding once again.
We will continue to deal with gusty northeasterly winds thanks to the pressure difference between an area of high pressure to our north and Hurricane Teddy out in the Atlantic. Teddy is also bringing us coastal flooding, dangerous rip currents and rough surf.
A Coastal Flood Advisory and Warning remains in effect through Monday. It will be partly cloudy and windy. Winds will be out of the northeast at 15-20 mph, with gusts up to 30 possible.
Minor flooding will occur at the 1 PM tide cycle at Sewells Point. Make sure you protect any property or move your vehicle if you live in an area that is prone to coastal and tidal flooding. Some nuisance tidal flooding will be possible on Tuesday, but the winds will relax, and we will see plenty of sunshine. It is the First Day of Fall! High temperatures will warm to near 70.
A bit of a warm up starting on Wednesday. Temperatures will trend closer to normal for this time of year. Expect dry conditions and sunshine Wednesday through Friday with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s. Winds will be out of the southwest which will bring warmer air to the area.
Tropical Storm Beta continues to move slowly west-northwestward toward the Texas coast.
Located about 120 miles S of Galveston, Texas
Max sustained winds: 60 mph

A decrease in forward speed and a sharp turn to the north and northeast is expected Monday night and Tuesday. On the forecast track, the center of Beta will continue to move toward the central coast of Texas and will likely move inland by Monday night, and remain close to the coast of southeastern Texas on Tuesday.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 195 miles from the center.
Wilfred degenerates into a trough of low pressure.
Hurricane Teddy turning slowly toward the north-northwest. Dangerous rip currents forecast along western Atlantic beaches for several days.
Located about 210 miles SSE of Bermuda
Max sustained winds: 105 mph

Category 2 hurricane
Teddy is approaching Bermuda from the southeast, and the center should pass east of the island Monday morning. Teddy is forecast to be approaching Nova Scotia late Tuesday or early Wednesday.
