more of an earl flow and that'll keep our moisture fairly high. 68 degrees with a north wind at 3 miles per hour. you can see 81% relative humidity at the moment and again, the temperatures have been fairly pleasant. after that sun goes down. and it does go down earlier. we're seeing the temperatures drop a little bit more. 89 our record, 199 1991. so these temperatures are fairly warm given this time year. gorgeous shot from carl randall. hashtagged us there. and danny cook got kind of screwy looking clouds here. this is out of the clear water beach. high clouds. probably a bit of a wave pattern. mostly clear conditions at that location. 79 degrees at noon. 85 degrees at 4:00 p.m. extra clouds and warm conditions for us. 74 degrees l a, rgo.
i mentioned, largely because of higher humidity. largely because we're seeing a stronger earl flow. at the high levels of the atmosphere. that's where these clouds are streaking in from the west. at the lower levels, that is generating a few showers across south florida for tonight. places likekey largo. and a few showers continue to roll off here to the west. on the rpm forecast, computer model. a few clouds don't roll. that'll be in florida and they're lifting to the north. and we might see in the afternoon, a few extra clouds for us. so we'll look at that in the sky. but the rain chances are really 10% or less. probably more on the or less part. because the shower chances -- just are not that great. nothing to really trigger the shower activity. and there's a lot of stability in the atmosphere overall. but earl flow is definitely in place for friday afternoon. a mix of sunshine and clouds.
the humidity will be relatively high. but generally lower rain chances. 68 degrees. that's our forecast low. 85 degrees in the afternoon. a few extra clouds and barack obama normal temperatures. with an overall earl flow. that at times today, certainly we could call that breezy. 85 as well for saturday. sunshine and clouds. but note that rain chance, we were talking about that less than 10% chance, we're going to not much chance at all. the best chance, if any, for a few drops will be across the southern portion of the of course, we want nice weather for that. trick or treaters, and there was the moral of the story, don't dress your kid like warm clothing like eskimo or bear costume. something more tropical. miranda perhaps. with the fruit. >> you can google that. >> there's a lot of people who know who that is. the cubs even up the world
