Bolaris: A Half-empty, half-full weekend forecast

I'm going to say it ... "Man how time flies."

It's the weekend before Labor day and most want to squeeze in every last drop of sunshine. You're going to need to wait for the second half of the weekend before copious amounts of the solar disk's rays return.

Right now it looks as if a tropical disturbance will intensify into a tropical storm over the next 48 hours and take on the name Cristobal.

Cristobal should move through the southeast Bahamas this weekend but remain away from the East coast. Will update with any future changes in track and intensity upgrades or downgrades.

On Saturday a cool front will be dropping through and with it plenty of cloud cover along with some scattered showers. Winds will flow in from the ocean leading to cooler than normal temps. Along the shore points temperatures will be hard pressed to crack 72.

Here's my weekend forecast:

Saturday

City - 76 (clouds scattered showers)

Poconos - 71 (afternoon clearing)

Shore -72 ( clouds, cool breeze, scattered showers)

Sunday

Golden sunshine returns from the mountains to the shore.

City - 77

Shore -74

Poconos -75

My advice is to sleep late on Saturday, but rise and shine early for Sunday as bright sunshine returns.
