This Week’s Hazards
Widespread hazardous weather is not expected over the next five days. The remnants of Ian are not expected to adversely affect our weather, though we are forecast to receive some rainfall. That rainfall is not expected to cause flooding issues and winds should stay below advisory criteria. I’ll continue to monitor this closely.
