Sunshine Returns Nice Stretch of Weather Ahead
We have finally seen the frontal boundary move far enough to the east to bring in dry and and some sunshine. Dew points have dropped and will continue to ease today and tonight. Today’s highs will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s which is such a nice contrast to the furnace of this past weekend. We should be no worse than partly sunny today. There is a little instability in the atmosphere as the cold upper air trough passes through so a spot shower can’t be ruled out. Other than that there are no other weather issues today. Tonight will be nice and clear with most lows in the 60s though many cool spots will be down in the 50s.
We won’t be paying much attention to the radars over the next 5 days are so. There are no weather systems headed our way. It is about high pressure taking over and only slowly moving out to the east as when we get to the weekend. This setup is different from what we saw last week because the highs is going out well to the east which will keep us with a bit of an ocean flow this weekend. Also the hot humid air will be deflected well to the northwest of us. So yes it eventually turns very warm to borderline hot and somewhat humid but you really won’t notice it much until we get to Saturday and Sunday and I don’t think it will be at all oppressive.
The forecast is rather easy. Sunshine Thursday will take highs between 80 and 85. Sunshine Friday will take us to the mid to a few upper 80s with reasonable humidity. Saturday and Sunday we will be in the 80s to hot spots near 90. Humidity inches higher. No rain or thunderstorms are forecast right through the weekend. The next cold front won’t be coming until perhaps Tuesday of next week with a threat for showers and thunderstorms.
