Good Monday to one and all and welcome to a brand new week. I hope each of you had a fantastic weekend and got a chance to enjoy another round of pleasant temps. We will hang on to the cooler than normal weather for a few more days before we warm it up a bit by the end of the week. Overall, this is still one heck of a nice pattern for August.
I am going to mix it up a bit this week and talk a little bit about the fall and winter ahead. I will get you started on your wintry way before this post is over.
Our short term weather features similar conditions today into Tuesday. We will have a mix of sun and clouds and a small threat for a shower or thunderstorm. The GFS rain total through Wednesday shows the scattered nature of what we’re dealing with…
Temps will generally run in the upper 70s and lower 80s for many.
We will warm it up into the middle 80s for the end of the week for the central and east. The west will see readings heading closer to 90 for a day or two.

I will give you a little more insight into the fall and winter as the week wears on. That will include outlooks from various seasonal forecast models and some of my early thoughts. Spread the word!
Have a great Monday and take care.
