PM Update: Heat blasts, but prepares to leave
More fall-like weather ahead
updated at 5:00 p.m.
We're getting another late taste of summer here today but it won't be terribly long lived. Temperatures have risen to near 90 or into the low 90s, and with dew points near or above 60 most of the day, it's not super comfortable out. Tomorrow will be another warm one, but probably a little less so and also with a bit drier air mass. After that, we close out the work week on a splendid note.
Through Tonight: Temperatures dip back into the low-and-mid 80s around sunset under mostly clear skies. The night remains rather uneventful, though we pick up some more clouds by morning and maybe a quick shower. Lows range from the mid-60s to around 70.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): A cold front brings in drier air and perhaps an isolated morning shower, but we don't lose too much on the temperature side right away. Expect mostly sunny skies and a sometimes stiff breeze from the west as highs rise into the mid-to-upper 80s. Sustained winds around 10 mph with some gusts past 20 mph are likely.
Tropics: If you were enjoying the day yesterday you may have completely missed Tropical Storm Hermine. Hermine rapidly formed in the Bay of Campeche south southeast of Texas late Sunday night and quickly developed into a strong storm yesterday before making landfall in northern Mexico. Read more about the storm from Jeff Masters at Weather Underground. With Hermine under our belt, this season has now seen 8 named storms compared to the average to date of 5.
