First weather warning headlines:

· Mondays and Tuesdays have cool starts with low temperatures in their 40s!
· Keep an eye on activity in the tropics.
First alert weather alert:
A weak high pressure is in the southeast today and Friday. We stay dry because the air in a high pressure system sinks in and usually does not allow precipitation to occur. There is a strong trough to our east which will send a few clouds today, just partly cloudy skies expected with highs in the mid 80s.
Friday we have the mid 60s to start the day and the upper 80s in the afternoon. The sky will be mostly sunny.
Here is our big cold front! It arrives Saturday afternoon and brings us some clouds, a partly cloudy sky is to be expected. In addition, the winds will be blustery on the way with gusts of up to 20 mph. As the cooler air enters, it causes a heave that brings a 20% chance of a few brief showers. Temperatures at the front of the front will still be warm, so peaks will reach the mid-1980s.
Cooler air arrives Saturday afternoon with lows dropping to 51 Sunday morning. Sunday highs are in the 1970s with mostly sunny skies.
Monday morning, it’s cold, until 47! Highs are in the 1970s in the afternoon with sunny skies as high pressure again builds up over the area.
We also follow the activity in the tropics. An area of low pressure near the eastern Bahamas has a low probability of tropical development in the coming days. The odds are around 10% at the moment. We will keep an eye out for the low drifting northeast.
The final name on the 2021 Atlantic hurricane list is Wanda.
