ANOTHER DAY IN THE 70S
We continue to enjoy temperatures well above normal as highs are expected to top out in the low to mid 70s. High pressure continues to dominate the area bringing plentiful sunshine. A nice ridge in the upper levels keeps the milder air around for much of the week. Foggy spots will be possible once again in the morning. Visibility may lower to near zero at times, so be sure to keep the low beams on and use caution when driving. Any fog burns off quickly with sunrise leading to another great looking fall day with lots of sunshine.
Clouds will start to return Wednesday night into Thursday as an area of low pressure develops along the coast to our southeast.This feature shifts our winds to the east-southeast increasing the moisture which will result in more clouds for the day. There may be a stray shower but most of the day will remain dry. Highs will still be above normal in the upper 60s. Friday, despite mostly cloudy skies and a few showers late in the day towards evening, highs will be back into the low 70s ahead of a cold front. It pushes through late evening followed by much cooler air for the weekend. Not looking at a lot of rain, in fact, amounts should be less than .20” of an inch.
FEELING MORE FALL LIKE
Cooler air funnels in over the weekend. Clouds will mix with sunshine Saturday and a brisk northwest wind will keep temperatures in the low 60s. Winds will calm as high pressure builds in overhead leading to clear skies and a much chillier morning in the 30s early Sunday. Plenty of sunshine but it will be noticeably cooler in the mid 50s. Monday will be dry and sunny with highs remaining in the 50s. Clouds start to return by Tuesday.
