Forecast: Drying Out After Deluge
By Brian Jackson
Mother Nature gives us a couple of days to dry out from the tropical rains that drenched the area yesterday. High pressure in Hanna's wake builds in and gives us clear and warm conditions today and tomorrow. We'll have another chance for rain on Tuesday before we dry out again under cooler conditions later in the week.
Sunny skies, 87-90. We earned ourselves a nice day with the deluge that accompanied Hanna yesterday, and we will be rewarded. High pressure will build in behind the departing storm and give us mostly sunny skies. We'll warm into the upper 80s with winds out of the northwest at 8-13 mph.
For the overnight, skies will remain clear. North winds will drop the humidity and allow most of us to cool into the lower 60s. For you city-dwellers, expect a few degrees warmer.
Keep reading for the forecast through the middle of next week.
Mostly sunny and very warm, 88-91. We'll enjoy another day to dry us out even more on Monday. Skies will continue to be mostly sunny and temperatures will reach right around 90 degrees. Winds will shift to out of a more southerly direction and bring in some humidity by the afternoon.
We may see increasing clouds by Tuesday morning, but overnight Monday should be mainly clear. We'll be a bit warmer with lows only reaching the upper 60s due to southerly winds ahead of an approaching cold front.
Tuesday brings with it our next chance for rainfall. A cold front will move in during the afternoon setting off some showers and thunderstorms as it moves through. A chance for storms will remain for us into the evening hours. Highs should reach into the mid 80s under mostly cloudy skies. Confidence: Medium-High
Wednesday sees a cool down for us behind the cold front. Skies should clear out by the afternoon but temperatures will struggle to reach 80 degrees, topping out in the upper 70s. Confidence: Medium-High
Thursday will continue to be very pleasant with clear skies and temperatures once again in the upper 70s. Confidence: Medium-High
