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.
Sunday: Sun and clouds. High 81 Tonight: Mostly cloudy, sprinkle east. Low 63 Monday: More clouds, afternoon showers. High 75 (59)
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy, cooler, showers. High 64 (56)
Wednesday: Mix clouds and sun. High 65 (49)
Thursday: Partly sunny, shower possible High 62 (46)
Friday: Partly sunny, crisp. High 59 (41)
Have a good weekend! -Ben
