The weather, currently.
Big Canadian high pressure will allow temperatures to fall down into the twenties in the suburbs overnight. There will be a hard freeze in many areas and if you have any plants you want to keep going that are not Hardy it's a good idea to get them inside or cover them up well.
Sunshine returns on Wednesday with less wind and highs in the lower 50s. More Sunshine is around on Thursday and it's a lot milder with readings getting into the 60s. The remnants of tropical storm Nicole will move into the region late Friday and the first part of Saturday with some breezy conditions and the potential for heavy rain. —Dave Epstein

Tropical storm Nicole is expected to strengthen into a Category-1 hurricane on Wednesday and hit Florida's east coast early Thursday. Hurricane conditions are expected to impact the coast of southeast and east-central Florida beginning late Wednesday.
As of 10 am ET this morning, Nicole officially transformed from a subtropical cyclone into a tropical storm. As of Tuesday evening, due to model uncertainty, meteorologists predict that the storm could make landfall anywhere along the coast of eastern Florida, from Cape Canaveral to Miami.
“Nicole is expected to weaken as it moves inland over Florida and head northeastward over the southeastern United States, where it could bring heavy rain to Georgia and South Carolina,” says Currently’s Chief Meteorologist, Megan Montero.
The storm is expected to reduce to an extra tropical cyclone, and dissipate, by the weekend.
