Weather: Fabian Blasts Bermuda

By Michael J. Ring
STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- Early September is the peak of the Atlantic hurricane season, so it's no surprise that today's weather headline is the ferocious storm Fabian. As of yesterday afternoon, Fabian was centered about 400 miles (670 kilometers) south of Bermuda, and was steaming north-northwestward. Today the hurricane is expected to pass near Bermuda, bringing 120 mph (200 kph) winds to the resort island. While Bermuda is likely to get battered, Fabian's effects here should be limited to rough surf, as the storm is expected to be pushed eastward after passing Bermuda.

With Fabian passing out to sea, our weather will be much more mundane. High pressure will settle in to the region from the west, allowing us to dry off from yesterday's rain. The next few days will be pleasant and fall-like with clear skies and seasonable temperatures.

Weekend Outlook:

Today: Clearing skies. High near 73ºF (23ºC).

Tonight: Clear and seasonably cool. Low near 58ºF (14ºC).

Tomorrow: Mostly sunny. High near 75ºF (24ºC).

Tomorrow night: Clear. Low near 60ºF (16ºC).

Sunday: Partly cloudy and warmer. High near 80ºF (27ºC); low near 60ºF (16ºC).

Monday: Mostly clear and cooler. High near 70ºF (21ºC).
