The forecast is looking fantastic after today! If you’ve missed warm temps and sunshine, you’re in for a treat! I fully expect many of us to hit the 80-degree mark Tuesday and maybe even Wednesday. That will feel nice!

A new storm system may approach by the end of the week, but guidance is very unclear as to how that will play out. I’ll keep an eye on it.

This is just one of the many spectacular photos of Friday morning’s rocket launch from Cape Canaveral. Folks all along the Southeast coastlines of the US saw sights like this in their early-morning skies. The four astronauts are scheduled to dock with the International Space Station this morning.
