Beautiful early fall weekend, cooler days ahead

Weather

Expect another late summer day Sunday, as we continue with a dry streak going on two weeks without a drop of rain–not all that unusual this time of year, when high pressure rules. In September 1963, we had 16 days in a row without rain, and then started a month-long streak dry spell in October that lasted until Halloween.

Skies will be partly sunny Sunday, with a mild southwesterly flow behind high pressure in the Southeast that will push afternoon temperatures just above 80 degrees for the fourth day in a row–nearly 10 degrees above normal. Expect breezy conditions to develop.

A cold front will bring increasing clouds tonight, but the front will have to overcome dry air to produce some much-needed scattered showers Monday afternoon and evening.

A series of upper-level disturbances will bring opportunities for showers through a succession of cold fronts into midweek, with a pronounced cooling trend. Frost will be possible in the colder areas next weekend as skies clear to welcome October.
