PM Update: More of September's finest

By Ian Livingston

Mostly nice as far as the eye can see

A cold front that passed through this morning has done little more than kick up winds from the northwest and cause humidity levels to drop. All in all, it's a pretty awesome day though as temperatures rise to highs near 80 and into the lower 80s. A few clouds have floated by and we could see that continue off and on into the night, but if that's our weather concern then we are doing pretty well.

Through Tonight: A great evening for doing something outdoors! Temperatures falling through the low-and-mid 70s near sunset ultimately drop to lows in the low-to-mid 50s in the suburbs to near 60 in the city. Skies should be partly to mostly clear and winds subside to occasional breezes.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): This is another in the string of spectacular days of recent. Mostly sunny skies, and temperatures rising to highs in the low 80s most spots, should garner few complaints other than it being a work day. A breeze from the northwest continues, probably lighter than today.

Tropics: Hurricane Igor has weakened a bit since yesterday but remains a Category 4 storm today with winds sustained at 135 mph. Some re-intensification is possible in the near term before it moves into a less favorable environment. Further east, Julia has become a hurricane as well. And closer to land, a disturbance in the western Caribbean Sea is expected to organize, and may become Karl, as it heads toward the Yucatan Peninsula in the next day. None of these systems are likely to make direct impact on the U.S., but there is no sign of the Atlantic quieting down anytime soon.

This weather is wonderful.
If we could just get a nice overnight soaker to help maximize these last few weeks of fresh garden harvest.

You two are probably right... I mean, I love this weather soooo much, but we do need some rain. Man oh man. Let's just enjoy the great temperatures (& dewpoints) for now!?
