PM Update: Lovely End to Nice Work-Week Weather
Warmer on Saturday, some storminess late?
We squeezed out one more very nice day today even though humidity levels have begun to tick back up slightly. Numerous afternoon cumulus clouds drifting by overhead have been the only real weather story, as highs once again rise to the lower 80s across much of the area. If you can skip out of work early, it's going to be another lovely afternoon and evening with clouds likely decreasing again.
Through Tonight: After evening temperatures fall through the 70s, we should see partly cloudy conditions persist through most of the night. With a bit more humidity, temperatures will be a little warmer than recent. Lows mainly in the low-to-mid 60s.
Tomorrow (Saturday): Skies will be partly sunny much of the day, though scattered showers or storms may become an issue by late afternoon. The below-average temperature regime of recent departs and we warm back to near-or-above average highs in the mid-to-upper 80s. Right now, it looks like most activity will hold off till evening or overnight, when a line of storms may pass through.
El Niño is Born: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced that El Niño has officially arrived and it is expected to continue through the winter. Major impacts through September should focus on regions near the central and west-central Pacific Ocean. The United States does not typically see the worst of El Niño till fall and winter. Mentioned previously, many believe El Niño lessens the severity of the Atlantic Hurricane Season and Matt Rogers noted earlier this week that a developing El Niño often means a relatively cool and wet summer around here, as we have seen so far.
