Maria will skirt the Bahamas Friday, but beyond the weekend the storm's track becomes less certain.

New Weather Service data show two locations near Port Arthur, Tex. registered over 60 inches of rain.

Dusk is arriving noticeably earlier, and cooler temperatures are on the way.

Friday will be a lot like today, after a pleasant evening with temperatures dipping into the 60s in some areas.

Because of the precipitation and cooler weather, many national forests' fire-danger levels have been reduced from extreme to moderate.

The storm is expected to turn north parallel to the East Coast — but just how close it will come, while enormously consequential, is not clear.

For those awaiting cool and crisp fall weather, the next several days will be discouraging.
