The weather, currently.

Last warm day with temperatures in the upper 80s and sunshine for Tuesday, Sept. 20th

Only one more day of summer-like weather before we see yet another glimpse of fall. A cold front will arrive on Wednesday and will plummet our temperatures by about 20 degrees. We also see another chance of rain in the forecast. So, keep sandals on hand for Tuesday and a rain jacket ready for Wednesday.

Here's your Tuesday forecast:

1) Cool morning with temperatures in the 50s and 60s.

2) Warming up for the afternoon with temperatures in the upper 80s.

3) Last warm day before the cool down comes.

Activity forecast:

Walking, gardening and grilling: It will be a mild in the morning and a warm afternoon. But, I really don't see any issue through most of the day.

Running, cycling, outdoor active sports: Only one more day of a summer workout rules until a change. Best time of day is the morning.

Hurricane Fiona made landfall in Puerto Rico on Sunday, knocking out power for more than 90 percent of households on the island and bringing some of the most devastating flooding Puerto Rico has ever seen. Early on Monday, the storm’s path veered towards the Dominican Republic, causing major flooding there too.

The storm is expected to move west towards Turks and Caicos Islands on Tuesday and continue to strengthen to a category 3 hurricane by Wednesday.

More than 1.3 million people across the island are without power, as of Monday around 9 AM, according to Power Outage US. The rain is expected to continue through Tuesday, after that, temperatures in the upper 80°F (31°C) will pose an additional hazard for those still without power.

Fiona’s effects are comparable to or worse than those of Hurricane Maria — which struck Puerto Rico almost exactly five years ago. The island was still recovering from the effects of Maria and is now once again under water.”
