Beautiful Cool Weather Ahead Low Humidity Sunshine No Rain Through At Least Sunday
September and October are the driest months of the year on average. Certainly this September will be playing to form as a cold front as dropped southward today and we are beginning to see the arrival of dry air from Eastern Canada and Upstate NY. The cloud line is shifting southward and skies will go mostly clear tonight. Temperatures are going to cool off with most lows in the 50s to near 60 but there will be some 40s in the cool spots. September into mid October is the most active part of hurricane season and this is playing to form as well with Hurricane Humberto off the Southeast US coast but it is moving to the east and heading for Bermuda so it will be no issue here. Winds are now up to 90 mph and a Tropical Storm Watch is up for Bermuda.
Tuesday will be a nice day with lots of sunshine, a nice breeze from the northeast and highs will be in the 70s. An upper trough dropping southward Tuesday night from Eastern Canada will bring a re-enforcement of dry air as a strong high builds in New Brunswick. Skies will be clear Tuesday night and most lows Wednesday morning will be in the upper 40s to mid 50s.
With the upper trough passing through Wednesday we will see a mix of sun and clouds with highs just in the 60s and a nice northeast breeze. Wednesday night will be another clear cool night with lows in the 40s to lower 50s. Thursday looks mostly sunny with the high still overhead. Highs will be in the upper 60s and lower 70s. There are no changes in the outlook for Friday and for the weekend. It will be dry. The high will settle to our south Friday. We should see sunshine with highs in the 70s. Over the weekend it will warm a bit to the upper 70s and lower 80s with some sunshine each day. The humidity all week long will be very low and it will only come up slightly over the weekend.
The next cold front will approach next Monday but there is a fair chance this front comes through weak with little if any shower activity. This means it could be dry at least into the middle of next week. Weather models are showing another potential tropical system somewhere well off the Southeast coast if it is even there at all. For now dry September weather is in control until further notice.
