By Executive Order: Nice week ahead

The weekend featured a summerlike Saturday, and a fall-like Sunday. The week upcoming will feature a blend of the two.

Forecast details

As high pressure builds to our southwest, we'll see plenty of sun today and a seasonable afternoon after a cool start. High temperatures should reach the upper 60s to near 70 while starting off the day from the mid 40s in the suburbs to low 50s downtown.

As high pressure remains to our south, nice westerly, downsloping winds will allow temperatures to moderate Tuesday and Wednesday. Expect highs of 72-76 on Tuesday and 75-80 on Wednesday.

A week cold front will move through Wednesday night but it should not effect temperatures much for Thursday, as highs should reach the mid 70s under partly cloudy skies.

Late Thursday, a warm front will move through setting the stage for a mild Friday, with highs 74-78.

By Saturday, a cold front will approach with showers and thunderstorms possible in the afternoon. Highs should be in the low to mid 70s. Right now, Sunday should be partly cloudy and cooler with highs in the 60s.

Tropical Update

There's some chance Tropical Depression #24 will be Tropical Storm Wilma by the time many of you are reading this. This system, over warm Caribbean waters, is likely to intensify into a hurricane over the next several days, perhaps a major hurricane. The track forecast is very uncertain -- but in the short term, at least, it's likely to slowly move northwestward towards the Yucatan peninsula. Dr. Jeff Masters at Wunderground has a nice explanation as to why the storm may target the west coast of Florida this weekend.
