Tropical Storm Sally is still disorganized, drifting northwest about 150 miles south of the Gulf Coast, with top sustained winds of 60 mph. The storm is still expected to reach hurricane strength before making landfall early Tuesday in southeastern Louisiana.
This week will feel like early fall, which is officially a little over a week away. Low pressure over southeastern Canada pushed a cold front through Ohio earlier today, after bringing several bands of rain and welcome moisture. Drier air is filtering in on a northwesterly flow tonight that will lower both the temperature and humidity to start the week.
High pressure from Canada will build in, with comfortable temperatures in the 70s and cool mornings, ranging from the upper 40s to mid-50s. A return flow from the southwest will boost temperatures briefly to near 80 Wednesday ahead of the next cold front, which will bring a little rain Wednesday night into Thursday, possibly augmented by some tropical moisture from the remnants of Sally crossing the Mid-South.
Tonight: Clearing, cooler. Low 58
Monday: Partly cloudy, pleasant. High 74
Tuesday: Sunny. High 76 (49)
Wednesday: Sun giving way to clouds, late shower. High 80 (55)
Thursday: Showers likely. High 72 (63)
Friday: Sun, cool. High 68 (53) Saturday: Sunny, nice. High 74 (47)
Have a good week! -Ben
