Morning Set Up
High Pressure centered over Western Maryland has septs storms away, but allow the smoke to return. See more on that below. Teddy and Beta have weakened. Teh rain from Beta should remain to our south, but send in clouds for the next few days.
The sky appears to be clear with clouds to the east from Teddy and south from Beta. But we may have some smoke this morning, once again from the wildfires out west. More clouds will filter across the sky during the afternoon.
The moon set last night with a distinct orange color. It appeared as if the smoke had returned.

This model suggests upper 70s. I think there is a good chnace we could reach the lower 80s, but that will depend on the smoke aloft dispersing.
