Much drier air will be moving in behind a weak cold front on Friday. Expect little or no chance for rain as we make our way through Memorial day weekend. Highs will be in the mid 80s near the beaches, and upper 80s to low 90s inland. Lows will be quite comfortable for this time of year, with temperatures falling into the mid 60s, but the dry air will make it feel very nice.
NOAA is predicting an above average season for this upcoming hurricane season which begins June 1st. Their prediction is based on a warmer then average Atlantic, no El Nino and increased disturbances coming off the African coast. The numbers for this upcoming season are as follows.
13-20 Named storms
3-6 Major storms with winds greater than 110 mph.
They are quick to point out that although they can predict how many storms with some skill, they can't say where the storms are going to develop.
Remember it only takes one hitting our coast to make it an active one.
