6:19 pm
it will get kind of close to bermuda and then take a big right-hand hook and miss the island. anytime a system passes east of a land mass, the impact is generally weeker than the storm passing west of them. it shouldn't be too bad for bermuda. lisa does its thing in the atlantic and moves across open water and should be gone in a couple of days. so much for that. now, there's dry air in the west in yellow. there will be dry air weekend from maine all the way down to north carolina. still too early to drag down this dry air or way. we stay in the steambath for the predictable future. it will be cooler and less humid in north carolina to maine, but no way that's getting our way anytime soon. 86 is and the dew point 72 and a west wind at 9. tonight a couple of showers near the coast. we're down to 78 and a mix of
