Cooler, Drier Weather Forecast for Recovery Efforts

12 Oct 2018, 4:30 pm

As quickly as Major Hurricane Michael ravaged the Florida panhandle Wednesday, it was gone in no time. With search and rescue, relief and rebuilding processes underway in the hardest hit areas, we take a look at the weather forecast moving forward. Here’s Meteorologist Steve Glazier:


High pressure will dominate much of the Southeast this weekend through Sunday, October 14. The impacted areas will become much *drier* and *cooler* each overnight. Temperatures are expected to fall well into the 60’s and even 50’s at night. During the day it will be warm because of full sunshine, but high temperatures will hold near 70-80 degrees. It will become warmer and muggier Sunday evening in advance of an approaching cold front. Some isolated rain showers may emerge by Monday, but the more likely days for scattered rain showers will be Tuesday and Wednesday. Up to an inch of rainfall is possible now through Friday, October 19. You’ll find the forecast images below:
