By VÉronique Bugnion and Jessica Neu

By the time this forecast is published, we will have all experienced the tropical storm force winds and downpours associated with what was left of Hurricane Floyd. Floyd’s remnants will be leaving our area this afternoon.

High pressure will gradually take over tonight and tomorrow, promising us clearing skies and a nice weekend.

After Floyd comes Gert... Packing winds of 145 mph, this is the fourth hurricane this season having reached category IV status. Luckily, it is not predicted to make landfall on the East Coast of the United States.

Friday night: Clearing, low 57ºF (14ºC).

Saturday: Partly cloudy, high 70ºF (21ºC).

Sunday: Clear, high 70 to 75ºF (21-24ºC).
