hours … continuing into the open waters of the north Atlantic.
 
WEATHER HEADLINES:
 
VERY chilly (and cloudy) autumn weather this past weekend ending …
 
Low clouds one of the issues during the past 48 hours – due, in a large part, to the “closed low” now located off the NE Florida coast …
 
Virtually no activity expected on FIRST ALERT Doppler radar – not only today but through the majority of the week ahead
 
Next “mention” of rain not in our the forecast until late week – and then, only spotty/isolated showers (10% - 20%)
 
Overall, there will be few day-to-day changes in our early October weather; returning to “AC” weather again during the afternoon; mild overnight temperatures!
