We say goodbye to Hurricane Dorian and hello to the weekend ahead. Tropical Storm Warnings have been allowed to expire but Coastal Flood Advisories and Watches remain in place through Sunday morning. Skies will continue to clear out overnight allowing temperatures to fall back into the mid to upper 50s and low 60s.

In some neighborhoods you may even need a sweater early Saturday morning then again Sunday morning as temperatures cool off under clear skies. Good sleeping weather will translate to seasonably sunny afternoons Saturday and Sunday with highs around 80 degrees. The cool weather will stick around through early next week with highs around 80 and a chance at an isolated shower or two.

At the beach the nice conditions will return through the weekend ahead. High rip currents will remain a concern so swimmers beware. Bay flooding could also be likely Saturday especially during the high tide cycle.

Unfortunately if your looking for Fall you will have to wait at least a few more weeks. Highs Wednesday and Thursday will be back close to 90 with another front moving through the area late week. Long range 8-14 day outlooks continue to pain the picture of above average temperatures and normal precipitation as we head toward Fall.

With all that said clear skies this weekend will make for ample opportunity of a sky-watchers delight over Baltimore and much of Maryland. Jupiter and Saturn will appear in the skies from now through Sunday with Neptune making an appearance Monday evening. Jupiter and Saturn should be visible to the naked eye compared to Neptune where you will need a telescope. Each planet will be visible in the south to southwest sky. The full "Harvest Moon" will follow these planets on the unluckiest day of the year Friday September 13th, 2019.

Stay tuned!
