Shower and thunderstorm chances will remain at about 60 percent for every day this week. Typical afternoon and evening storms will be most likely.

High temperatures will be in the low 90s and low temperatures in the mid-70s. The tropics are very active, but nothing appears to be moving toward our area at this time. I am very cautious about the remainder of the hurricane season, as I think the entire east coast of the U.S. will be at risk so stay up to date and I will keep you posted each week.

 Autumn begins on Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 9:30 a.m. The sun will rise almost directly in the east and set directly in the west on this day, and night and day are of almost equal length. The days are getting shorter with sunset now coming at 7:30 p.m.

 People often ask me a good place to order weather equipment and weather stations. has a good selection also is a good place to check as well as  If you get some weather equipment and start keeping rainfall and temperature data, I would love to have your reports as a weather spotter, and you can email me at
