A warm air mass will remain in place for the next several days. Temperatures have made their way into the 80s, and upper 80s are forecast for today. With the dew points expected to be in the upper 60s, even this afternoon, heat index values will flirt with 90. Not necessarily October weather.

More of a southerly flow will continue into Thursday and Friday keeping temperatures warm. Night time temperatures will remain in the upper 60s with highs Friday in the mid 80s.

A front over the middle part of the country will eventually crawl southward by the weekend. Don't get too excited yet, this one will also stall near the area. No big cool down is expected, but humidity levels may drop off a bit. Rainfall chances will be minimal.

Later next week, a stronger front is expected to push through. This could bring highs back in the 70s with lows dropping into the 50s.

Hurricane Epsilon will drift east of Bermuda, then continue a lonely track toward the north Atlantic later this weekend.
