High pressure will continue to build in across the region for the weekend keeping the remnants of Jose offshore as the storm gradually weakens. Seas will remain churned up through Friday and part of Saturday then gradually subside through the weekend as winds from Jose taper off.
Despite this being the first weekend of fall, it will feel more summer like as warm and humid air gets pumped back into the region. High temperatures will range 10 to 20 degrees above normal reaching the upper 70s to upper 80s. Some spots may even touch the low 90s Sunday and Monday.
A cold front will eventually move in toward the middle part of next week that will bring in more seasonable air and also help to steer Hurricane Maria out to sea after the storm takes a turn up the east coast in the coming days.
