Forecast: Warm and Dry, Again and Again
Effects from Fay on Friday?
By Brian Jackson
The upcoming forecast is, quite frankly, a repetitive one. I apologize beforehand for sounding like a broken record. High pressure will hold at least through Wednesday meaning sunny and warm will be the norm. Homeowners should prepare to do some heavy-duty lawn watering this week. Our next cold front approaches on Wednesday but will not be strong enough to squeeze any moisture out of our dry air mass. Will the remnants of Tropical Storm Fay break our dry spell late in the week?
Pleasant and warmer, some afternoon clouds. 85-90. Mostly clear weather continues today as this spell of warm and dry weather continues. Some cumulus clouds may build during the afternoon but we will stay dry. Afternoon highs will approach 90 with humidity levels remaining pretty low. Winds will be light.
Overnight, we'll stay mostly clear and comfortable. Lows will drop to the low to mid 60s and winds will be out of the south-southwest at 3-7 mph.
Keep reading for the forecast through the middle of next week. See NatCast for the outlook for today's game.
Sunny and warm. 88-92. No reason to change the forecast much tomorrow as sunny skies will again prevail across the area. Temperatures may get back up into the 90s during the afternoon. Winds will be from the west at 5-10 mph.
Monday night, skies will remain mostly clear. We can't really complain about that fact as it will allow temperatures to cool back into the comfortable mid 60s.
On Tuesday, mostly sunny skies will lead to our warmest day of this period. Humidity will remain low however, so it will still be quite a pleasant day. Afternoon highs should reach the low to mid 90s. Confidence: Medium-High
Wednesday brings somewhat of a change, though not much. A weak cold front will move through but it the lack of moisture and weak forcing means we won't see any rain. What we will see is a mix of clouds and sun, and highs in the upper 80s. Confidence: Medium-High
It's still unclear whether what's left of Tropical Storm Fay will impact our area. If it does, it would most likely be in the Friday to Saturday time frame.
