Looks like a great way to start the weekend weather wise. Ample sunshine and PM warmth yet again today. Highs hit near 80 inland, upper 70s along the beaches in freshening Northeast breezes. Tonight, clear and cool, lows near 60 for Orlando Metro areas, the outskirts of town will see mid-upper 50s. Saturday and Sunday bring more sunshine and highs near 81, lows under clear skies at night near 60.
After many locations over the Plains feel like late summer this weekend, the record-challenging warmth will expand to the Northeast next week.
The disturbance responsible for drenching South Florida downpours will swing toward Bermuda this weekend, while the former Tropical Depression 9 lurks in the northwestern Caribbean Sea.
The remnants of Tropical Depression 9 will move over Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula through Friday, bringing heavy rain and gusty winds. Another system nearby bears watching.
Frigid conditions and heavy snow led to widespread and extensive school cancellations and delays last year. How will this winter shape up?
