High pressure will slide to our east allowing a southerly return flow on the backside of the high to setup. What this means? We will feel the humidity climb and temperatures will warm up tapping in on some heat that has been to our west for the past several days. Temperatures will rise above average for a few days before they plummet below average by the weekend as a strong cold front and deep trough digs in by Friday.
Clouds blanket the area this evening and can’t rule out a spotty shower or two. Temperatures will be milder overnight with lows in the mid 60s.
SUMMER NOT OVER YET!
With the winds more south-southwesterly the next few days, the heat builds in boosting our temperatures to the upper 80s to 90 degrees. The humidity will climb too. We start out with clouds and maybe a brief isolated shower but the sunshine breaks out and will allow temps to warm quickly to the upper 80s tomorrow.
We are very warm on Wednesday as highs could reach or exceed 90 degrees. There is also the threat for isolated storms in the afternoon. A better chance for scattered showers and storms expected Thursday as a cold front arrives late in the day. Overnight lows the next couple of nights will be in the upper 60s to low 70s under partly cloudy skies. Highs Thursday despite shower chances will warm into the low to mid 80s.
A TASTE OF FALL IN TIME FOR THE WEEKEND
Jetstream dives south of the area towards the end of the week and stays there into the weekend allowing for cooler air to spill in from the north-northwest. We’ll experience cool nights in the 40s with highs maybe stuck in the 60s Saturday despite full of sunshine. It will be warmer by Sunday with highs in the mid 70s under mostly sunny skies.
Have a great night!
