The last bit of light showers are across the eastern half of the area this morning. These are mainly confined to I-75 and east and will gradually dissipate through the early afternoon. A bit of sunshine will make a return by days end, with highs topping out in the upper 70s.
Looking at the Atlantic, its fairly quiet for a change. A disturbance off the coast of the Carolinas could bring heavy rainfall to the coast, otherwise no tropical systems are expected to develop over the next 48 hours.
Moving forward, high pressure will build in from the south. As it does so, drier air will filter in along with warmer temperatures. Highs by the end of this weekend will be in the lower 80s, with that trend to continue into Columbus day and the new work week. Our next best chance of rain doesn't make a return until at least the mid to late work week.
Overall, things dry out by the end of the day today. Dry conditions and well above average temperatures will then stick around the next several days. Take advantage, there is not many times we are stuck in the 80s for early to mid October.
