Dry And Seasonable This Weekend(We Deserve It!)

Climate report for Friday

Talk about a tale of two days! First during the morning it was humid with on-and-off rain showers(1-2" fell close to the shore) thanks to a upper level trough as well as moisture from Hurricane Arthur as it passed by to the northeast. That pushed away by the early afternoon and we had sunshine by the late afternoon despite a gusty northwesterly wind over 20mph.

Overnight the wind shall begin to subside and we'll have a mostly clear sky; lows will be around 60(middle 50s in the suburbs!). Saturday will feature plenty of sunshine(well, maybe some fair-weather cumulus in the afternoon once we reach our convective temperature; the estimated temperature that the surface must warm to for clouds to develop). Highs will be in the lower 80s with a northwesterly wind around 10mph.

On Sunday we'll have more of a westerly wind so highs will be in the middle 80s, but continued lower humidity; it's not until Monday as we'll be more into a southerly flow as a warm front pushes well to the north. There may be some pop-up showers and/or thunderstorms in the afternoon north and west as a short wave pushes through. Highs will be in the lower 90s with the humidity returning as well.

Come Tuesday we'll have a cold front approach from the west; the day will start off hot and humid with highs in the lower 90s, but then have showers and thunderstorms by the afternoon. It will linger into the overnight with lows in the middle 70s as the front stalls on top of the region. This means that Wednesday will feature on-and-off showers and thunderstorms with highs in the upper 80s while Thursday we'll finally clear out by the morning with highs in the middle 80s as drier air filters in and the sunshine returns as well.

That's it for now; have a great weekend, stay safe, and be sure to check out the rest of the 7-day forecast(you can any time from anywhere ) at www.scottderekwx.com/forecast.html.
