Monday. August 26 Forecast Discussion

Beautiful sunshine has been with us as we start off our week, and just a few fair weather cumulus clouds have dotted the sky. If you have been outside, you can feel the drop in humidity in the air as dew points have already dropped to the lower 60s as drier air works in. This dry air will be with us through midweek, allowing our nights to be cool and afternoons not oppressive.

Dry air warms up and cools down very rapidly, so temperatures will drop quickly after sunset tonight, and each night for the early part of the week. Dry air also warms up quickly, so once the sun rises, temperatures will spike quickly in the afternoons. Our overnight lows will be in the lower to middle 60s to start the week! Highs will slowly warm from the low 90s early in the week to the middle and upper 90s by the end of the week.

High pressure will keep most of the clouds and rain away until we reach the weekend when high pressure will weaken just enough to allow pop-up showers and storms across the area. These will be very isolated in nature, but will be possible through out Labor Day Weekend. High pressure, as of now, looks to rebuild into the first week of September, so we may have a very warm stretch for the unofficial end of summer.
