A chilly night is ahead...
Tonight will be rather chilly with many areas dipping well into the 30s. Below is a map of what area will see frost tonight. In the widespread areas expect grassy surfaces to be frost covered. In the patchy areas some areas of grass could be frosty tomorrow morning.

Below is a look at the five day forecast. Tuesday will be a rather dreary day with overcast and drizzle. Other than that the next five days look great.
Beautiful weather should continue throughout the next ten days. I don't really expect us to see any type of significant precipitation event any time soon.
I am currently watching for tropical development in the Caribbean. The waters south of Cuba are in the mid to upper 80s right now which is great for hurricane development. The wind shear is also fairly low and it is decreasing.
Here is what I expect will happen. Despite some model trends, I am pretty sure that we will see some type of tropical development. Beyond that there is a wide range of possibilities. If it stays weak it could go into the Yucatan peninsula. If it gets to tropical storm strength south of Cuba it would probably move between Cuba and Mexico and then turn east and threaten Florida. If it gets to hurricane strength it would make landfall in Cuba and then threaten the south coast of Florida. Whatever happens I expect it to then go out to sea. The only way that it could threaten us would be if it turned into some type of hybrid storm, which is highly unlikely.
That's it for today, stay tuned for my updated winter forecast which will be released tomorrow afternoon. Also be sure to follow my twitter for all the latest!
