David: Fall cold front arrives

(WVUE) - A strong early fall cold front has moved across the region. It is ushering in a week or more of sunny and dry weather. The summer humidity is gone for the time being. No rain is expected over the next week or so.

As Hurricane Irma passes well to our east over the weekend and early next week, it will send reinforcing shots of dry air into the Gulf Coast and ensure that our beautiful weather sticks around.

In addition to Irma, we are also tracking Katia in the Bay of Campeche. It is expected to stay well to our south. Jose is over the open waters of the Tropical Atlantic and no threat to land anytime soon.
