Detailed Forecast


Synopsis: Strong to near-gale breezes will continue through Saturday morning as very strong surface high pressure moves southeast off the U.S. Mid-Atlantic coast. High pressure will reach Bermuda late Saturday and then extend a ridge westward to Central Florida on Saturday night. The ridge axis will settle south to the Keys by late Sunday. A strong cold front on Monday will usher in strong northerly breezes which will last through Tuesday and Wednesday.
