Good morning!!!! For the time being, sweet relief from the sweltering heat and humidity is en route!!!
With skies turning mostly sunny, expect afternoon temperatures to peak at around 73. It is actually 71 with a dewpoint of 70 right now, but expect a temperature drop into the 60s before rising back into the 70s. Dewpoints will drop dramatically, through the 60s into the 50s and eventually to the mid 40s by this evening. Winds will turn to the north at 5-10 mph with gusts up to 20 mph possible. 73 degrees is actually three degrees above the average high for this date.
Tonight will get down to 46 degrees with clear skies and a north wind at 5-10 mph. 45 is the average low for this date, and 44 is the average low for tomorrow, so as a result, if the forecast verifies, tonight will actually be a warmer than average night. Hard to believe but it’s true.
Beyond that, we get a stretch of fall weather until a warmup around Tuesday and the potential for more hot weather by this time next week. I have done a good job of keeping it unbiased here, but I have to say it – booooooooooo! We’re getting out of a terrible stretch and now we will probably have more. Let me just say that I will try enjoying this more seasonable stretch while we have it. I don’t anticipate it to be to the extent that it has been the last few days, but it’s still hot weather – and by that point we will be in the first week of October.
Have a great day!
