The warm to hot and dry weather continues until midweek, then a front moves through later in the workweek followed by cooler and more comfortable air. We also still have a couple of tropical concerns, too, one close to home.
While not totally quiet, the weather across the south looks mostly dry and warm, even summery, through the middle of next week. Starting around Wednesday and going through the end of next week, it looks much more stormy.
Generally good fall weather follows Matthew this week, it looks mostly nice in the Southeast until the end of the week and not all that bad this weekend. Areas west of the Mississippi look more unsettled starting at midweek. Aside from Nicole, tropical focus is shifting to the Pacific for a while.
Matthew will cause substantial impacts along the Southeast Coast after hitting the Bahamas hard Tuesday. Time to batten down the hatches! There's still some question about what track Matthew will take north of the Outer Banks.
Matthew will hit Hispaniola, Cuba and the Bahamas hard over the early to middle part of the workweek before being at best a near miss along the Southeast coast later this week into the weekend. Meanwhile, a front moving into the Plains will be a severe storm producer Tuesday and the threat includes a tornado risk.
Matthew is going to cause severe damage in Haiti and Cuba as well as the Bahamas; eastern Jamaica could get hit hard, too. There is still some concern for the East Coast but hopefully, it's a near miss. Let's not lose sight of other things going on; there could be some substantial severe weather in the Plains on Tuesday.
