Hang in there, fall is coming (eventually)

Fronts are starting to make progress into the South, but the cooler air won't be sticking around long. And it looks as though summer will continue to hold on across the Deep South and Florida into October. There are some signs that cold fronts will make better progress south starting about a week from now, though. In the meantime, fronts moving in and stalling will make for some soggy stretches. Also, we aren't done with the hurricane season with a menacing critter heading toward eastern North Carolina. Whether or not it develops, there is some rain on the way, and that's the last thing the area needs after Florence. Rivers in that area are still at record high levels! There are several other features to watch in the Atlantic and Pacific, too.
