Good Sunday Evening!
We experienced a classic September weekend: times of clouds and sun, a light northwest breeze and low humidity. But get ready for a return to summer in a few days!
A weak front sagging south and an upper wave crossing the region caused clouds to thicken this afternoon, holding temperatures in the low to mid-70s. Sunshine will return by Monday afternoon, with temperatures pushing back into the seasonable low 80s.
A southerly flow behind high pressure shifting east from the Great Lakes to the Northeast will commence a summer-like stretch of days, beginning on Tuesday through the remainder of the week. Highs will approach 90, and the humidity will make it feel like the mid-90s. We’ve had these stretches the last several years in September, so nothing overly unusual.
A couple of cold fronts will trigger scattered mainly late-day storms Wednesday and again on Friday. Somewhat cooler air filters in next weekend.
Tonight: Clouds linger, with breaks. Low 60
Monday: Early clouds, then more sun. High 81
Tuesday: Mostly sunny,
very warm. High 90 (64)
Wednesday: Clouds increase, humid, few showers, storms. High 88 (68)
Thursday: Partly sunny, isolated storm. High 88 (68)
Friday: Partly sunny, storms later. High 87 (67)
Saturday: Partly sunny. High 81 (65)
Have a good evening! -Ben
