then we have other flows coming in from the southeast. things get kind of chaotic. we have northeast wind, combination new moon. now we have cristobal. look at the temperatures, too, held in the 70s. it's going to be rough at the shore, at least in the water for the next couple of days at least. we're dry in the east, bone dry. close showers back in chicago. they are certainly not going to get here tonight or into tomorrow morning. on this future cast just a chance of a couple showers especially north and west. most of the computer models don't have any rain with this front that is coming in. all it's going to do is take us from 90 plus degrees down into the mid-80s with lower humidity. so thursday is going to be a spectacular day. thursday night for the eagles, it's just beautiful.

now, here is hurricane cristobal, and it is not looking like it's strengthening or anything close to that. there is plenty of dry air on the western side of this thing. and so it's not likely to strengthen. p look at the track of it, so chaotic. it was nearly stationary yesterday. it keeps churning up the waves and that's going to keep the risk of the high rip currents there for much of the rest of the week. as far as the track is concerned, there's not much doubt about it. moves north now. going between east coast of the united states, bermuda, make that right turn like so many of those do. there really isn't much else out there in the tropics to be watching, at least the atlantic. sunny and very warm today, highs in the upper 80s. then for tomorrow, should be the hottest day of the week, 91

degrees, just a slight chance of an afternoon shower, mainly north and west. most of us will probably not see any rain. no one will see rain in our area thursday or friday. spectacular days again. we've seen a lot of those. then for saturday, the start of the holiday weekend looks dry, getting a little warm again. sunday just a slight chance of showers in the afternoon near 90 degrees. pretty nice at the shore. best chance of any kind of showers monday labor day. of course we'll update that this afternoon. we'll be right back.
