PARTLY CLOUDY THROUGH TUESDAY WITH COOL NIGHTS AND WARM AFTERNOONS

Partly cloudy and warm today. High temperatures will be be in the low-80's. We should have easterly winds at 10-15 mph. It will be partly cloudy and cool tonight. Low temperatures will range from the upper-60's on the Island to the mid-60's inland. Expect easterly winds at 10-15 mph. Monday should bring partly cloudy skies and warm temperatures. Highs will be in the low-80's. Expect easterly winds at 10-15 mph. On Tuesday, we should see partly cloudy skies and warm afternoon temperatures. Highs will be in the low-80's. Winds will be from the northeast at 10-15 mph.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:Fairly pleasant October weather should continue as we move into the new week. A weak cold front should settle near the coast, keeping temperatures mild to seasonably warm. Dry air aloft will keep partly cloudy conditions around with little chance for rain through tomorrow.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK:

A slow moving cold front extends from New Mexico east to just south of Galveston. The front then continues eastward across the northern Gulf of Mexico and north Florida to the Atlantic. Elsewhere, a large high pressure center is located over the Midwest and Ohio Valley while a weak frontal boundary is over the Dakotas. Further west, a cold front is off the coast of Washington and Oregon.

At the upper-levels, we are easing back into a slightly amplified pattern with a low pressure trough dipping south through the eastern Great Lakes to the Ohio Valley and Mid-South. Over the West, a large high pressure ridge dominates the western half of the country with the exception of an upper-level low over Southern California.

LOOKING AHEAD

Generally pleasant weather will prevail into next week with partly cloudy skies, cool to mild nights and warm afternoon temperatures. Slightly drier and cooler air may creep into our area tonight as high pressure builds into the area. Another infusion of cool, dry air may appear by the middle of the week, while a low develops in the Bay of Campeche. This will bring a brisk easterly breeze and slightly elevated tide levels to our area.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

Gonzalo has passed by southeastern Newfoundland as a minimal hurricane and should shortly weaken into a strong post-tropical low as it moves into the colder waters of the North Atlantic. At 8 am, AST, Gonzalo was centered near 47.6 N and 50.1 W, or about 120 miles southeast of St. John's, Newfoundland. Sustained winds were 85-mph with a central barometric pressure of 969 MB (28.62"). Gonzalo is racing northeast at 52-mph.

Elsewhere, the Tropics remain fairly quiet though the National Hurricane Center and some models project a low pressure area developing in the Bay of Campeche this coming week.
