Alan Returns- 09/06/11

The long holiday weekend worked out reasonably well. There were some showers scattered around yesterday for Labor Day.

Today we'll have some rain moving through during the day and tonight, and some heavy downpours are certainly possible. The moisture comes from a tropical storm that was once named Lee interacting with a weather boundary headed towards New Jersey. Highs today upper 60s to mid 70s. Lows tonight in the 60s, except near 70 along the south coast.

Occasional showers still seem likely for Wednesday with highs back in the 70s, but cooler by a little bit near the beaches.

And some showers are still possible, believe it or not for Thursday, with highs in the low 80s, but 70s near the ocean.

Speaking of near the ocean, we have powerful Hurricane Katia, which is moving northwest, and will be passing mid-way between Bermuda and the North Carolina coast in a couple of days time. It'll certainly make the ocean very rough with large swells coming in time, and making dangerous rip currents and the like.

That's the only impact we expect unless there is a last minute surprise change in the track. We expect it to pass many hundreds of miles east of New Jersey on it's track northeastward out to sea in the many days ahead.

That's it for now. More weather coming along tomorrow.
