TODAY: We have a good deal of sunshine mixing with some occasional cloud cover. It's warm and only a little bit humid. The high is 86.

AT THE SHORE: We have a high risk of rip currents and rough surf again today and probably will see continued rip current issues through the weekend. Swimmers should use extreme caution and not venture out too deep.

HURRICANE MARIA: Maria is now pulling away from Puerto Rico as a major Category 3 storm and will gain a little more intensity as it moves over open waters and heads toward the Turks & Caicos. It skirts to the east of those islands Friday and Saturday (close enough to have a negative impact) and then heads north, passing between the SE U.S. and Bermuda late this weekend. By about Tuesday and Wednesday, we expect Maria off our coast. It's too soon to predict how close to our coast the storm passes, although a direct hit does not appear likely at this time. Rip currents and heavy surf are likely during this period. For the exact track and specific local impacts, stay tuned.

TONIGHT: We see mainly clear skies. The low is a comfortable 66.

FRIDAY: Autumn arrives at 4:02 p.m., but it will still feel more like summer, although not all that humid. Skies will be no worse than partly sunny. The high is 85.

SATURDAY: What a weekend! We have mostly sunny skies for "part one" with another warm high around 86.

SUNDAY: Look for another unseasonably warm day with plenty of sunshine. We expect about 87 for the kickoff to the Eagles home opener. The high climbs to 89.

MONDAY: Clouds and sun mix and it's still very warm. Humidity begins to climb, too. We expect another high around 89.

TUESDAY: Look for another muggy day with a mix of clouds and sun and the chance for an afternoon shower or thunderstorm. The high eases down to 85, but that's still well the above average high which is in the mid 70s.

WEDNESDAY: Clouds mix with some sun. Another storm is possible. The high is 83.

THURSDAY: Look for partly sunny skies with continued warmth and another thunderstorm chance. The high is 80.
