PM Update: Clearing Skies Lead to Cool Night
Near-perfect day to end work week, then heating up
Much of the area escaped the heaviest of this morning's rain, the heart of which passed mostly south and east, but we did not escape clouds and cooler weather. By early afternoon, temperatures in many spots had only reached the low 70s. But as sunshine worked its way in from west to east, temperatures across much of the area began climbing toward highs near 80.
Through Tonight: This evening will be pretty pleasant as skies continue to clear. Early temperatures in the 70s with falling humidity levels will eventually end up in the upper 50s to mid-60s for lows.
Tomorrow (Friday): Tomorrow will be an awesome day for August. Look for low humidity, plenty of sun and highs rising to the mid-80s. That's about as good as it gets this time of year, and much better than what seems to be coming this weekend into next week. Get out and enjoy!
Hurricane Outlook Lowered: Earlier this week, Steve Tracton posted that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) hurricane outlook was likely to be lowered, given influence from a developing El Niño and other factors. Today, the announcement came that indeed the numbers have been lowered. NOAA now expects a below-average season with seven to 11 named storms, down from the previous forecast of nine to 14. NOAA now expects three to six storms to become hurricanes -- one or two becoming major.
