Western's Weather Wrap: Nice Sunday Here, while Irma Hits Florida

Forecast: Sunny And Mild All Weekend in New York

Forecast: Sunny And Mild All Weekend in New York

Sunday: Mostly sunny with highs in the lower 70s.

Increasing clouds during the day on Monday.

Mon: High: 86 Mostly sunny. Lows 44-50. Light wind. Florida will be greatly impacted, so if you have friends or relatives in Florida, make sure they are prepared. The rain will clear out by Wednesday afternoon and some sunshine might even break out.

Saturday is looking mostly dry with partly sunny skies and highs in the low 80s. If this forecast pans out, Friday would be a great day for a late-summer beach visit.

Under this scenario, Wednesday night will feature mainly clear skies and seasonably cool low temperatures - lower to middle 50s.

Hurricane Irma is moving into the Florida Straits between the Keys and Cuba this morning with maximum sustained winds of 125 m.p.h., making it a Category 3 storm at 10 A.M. CDT. Irma's surge will be focused on the western coast and may range between 10 and 15 feet, possibly inundating lowlands several miles away from the ocean.

Trump unlikely to pick Cohn to lead the Fed
But the critique to the FT caught Trump off guard, the Journal reported - and he now "visibly bristles" at the mention of Cohn. The White House didn't immediately return HuffPost's request for comment.

Wed: High: 89 Low: 62 Sunny.

More: Hurricane Irma track: Could the monster storm come west to Tennessee? Any morning fog will lift as the morning progresses, with mostly sunny skies and warm temperatures expected.

Besides widespread damage from the hurricane force winds, storm surge will be a very risky problem on the Gulf side with storm surge from 10 to 15 feet.

"Instead, likely impacts from the remnants include 1-2" of rain with locally higher amounts along the eastern sides of the mountains.

Farther out in the Atlantic, Hurricane Jose remains a powerful Category 4 hurricane with 145 mile-per-hour winds.
