The weather will stay picture perfect through the weekend even though temperatures will increase some Sunday. Late Sunday yet another reinforcing cold front is set to arrive.

High pressure will start to work into the area during the following work week. That will allow for dry weather to prevail and temperatures to slowly start warming back to early October norms.

Two tropical waves currently in Caribbean are slowly trying move towards the Gulf of Mexico. It remains to be seen if anything will develop with these features, but the locally area should be protected from the forecast upper level flow over the next 2 weeks.
