Forecast Discussion: An area of dry high pressure is building in over the next several days, giving us a mostly sunny forecast. Dry weather can both cool down quickly after sunset and heat up quickly after sunrise. Overnight lows Friday night will dip to the mid 50s inland and mid 60s on the beaches. Afternoon highs will reach the upper 70s over the weekend with a gradual warming trend into next week.

The activity in the tropics shows little signs of slowing down over the next 8 days. Hurricane Sam is moving westward slowly and is expected to pass north of the Leeward Islands in a few days. The eventual track of Sam remains uncertain, but most computer models turn it northward bringing an increased risk to Bermuda. Any westward shift could increase the risk to the US East Coast. In addition to Sam, the National Hurricane Center is also tracking Subtropical Storm Teresa located just northwest of Bermuda. Teresa is expected to stay off the coast of the US and peak this weekend before transitioning to a non tropical system.
