Monday, September 16 Forecast Discussion

Another warm day outside as already early this afternoon readings are above 90 degrees. We will keep the above normal weather through the rest of the work week. If we reach 90 through Friday, as forecasted, that will make 19 of the 20 days this month at or above 90 degrees (the only exception being our comfortable 84 on Saturday).

As we move through late Tuesday, our winds should begin to shift from the northeast to the southeast, which will begin to return moisture to the area from the Gulf. As this happens, overnight lows will creep back up towards 70 with the chance for afternoon isolated showers and storms returning on Wednesday and lasting to Friday.

On Friday, an upper level trough will swing through the Great Lakes region, sending in our direction a cold front through the area. It appears, as of now, there will be some upper level support with this system, meaning showers and storms for our Friday afternoon through Saturday. Temperatures will thus be held down into the low 80s, if that, on Saturday.

Rain exits late Saturday and right now Sunday and Monday look dry with much more seasonal readings in the mid 80s.

In the tropics, Ingrid made landfall Sunday over Mexico and is quickly weakening. T.S. Humberto reformed today in the central Atlantic and is forecast to become extra-tropical as we move into the middle of this week.
