Summary: Ho hum, and nothing spectacular over the past 24 hours. A mix of light showers, with 0.09 inches of rain, winds mostly from the south with gusts to around 20 knots. A few very short sunbreaks, but not enough to totally dry the ground. Temperature range was 45F low to 50F high.
Forecast: More of the same today with a mix of showers and a few patches of blue. Tomorrow we're anticipating the next fall storm, forecast to arrive by afternoon. Though high wind warnings have not been posted, a southerly breeze up to 45 knots is possible along with substantial rain (over an inch) expected to last until Tuesday morning. Rest of the week, drier and cooler.
Marine: Still some decent-sized seas this morning, in the upper teens, and southerly wind gusts to 25 knots. Both seas and breeze forecast to lay down briefly tonight, before ramping up tomorrow. Looking for full blown gales and seas running in the upper teens to around 20 feet by Monday night.
In short: Unsettled weather today, next storm arriving tomorrow.
