Forecast Discussion

We can expect dry weather for the foreseeable future thanks to high pressure centered in the Northeast followed by subsidence around the periphery of Hurricane Maria (sinking air outside the region of the storm). A dry front moves through Thursday (dry because Maria has robbed so much moisture from the Southeast). Cooler weather follows for Friday and next weekend.

Tropical Systems...
The remnant low from Jose is spinning down southeast of Cape Cod. It fades off the map tomorrow.
Maria is a Category 3 hurricane centered 285 miles east of Great Abaco Island. It's moving NNW. Maria will stall east of the NC Coast Wednesday and Thursday, close enough to Cape Hatteras Thursday that the Outer Banks will feel some effects and beach erosion could be an issue. Friday, Maria gets caught up in the front (the front passing through here Thursday) and then speeds northeast away from the U. S.
