The perceptive among us will notice temperatures a notch or two warmer today -- Labor Day Monday -- than the low 80s seen this weekend; we will, however, hang onto continued abundant sunshine and low humidity levels, so all in all I'd say Mother Nature is being pretty cooperative on this holiday Monday.
Labor DaySunny; warmer.
If you turned off the A/C this past weekend, I'd put it back on today. Abundant sunshine will couple with warmer high temperatures in the upper 80s in most places (but still low humidity), though some spots may reach 90. Clear and not as cool overnight, with lows primarily in the mid to upper 60s.
TuesdayMore of the same.
Weather on Tuesday will be remarkably similar to the conditions we'll see today. Expect partly to mostly sunny skies with high temperatures near 90 and continued low humidity. Partly cloudy overnight, with lows from the mid 60s to near 70 downtown.
Late yesterday, Hurricane Felix
, located in the Caribbean Sea, strengthened to become the second hurricane (as well as Category 5 storm) in the Atlantic Basin this hurricane season.
It will continue to trek westward towards the Central American coast, likely hitting Belize by mid-week. Some fluctuation (both up and down) in maximum wind speed is possible over the next 48 hours, but most models indicate that Felix will remain a very dangerous strong Category 4 or Category 5 storm during this period.
