Late Summer Pattern Hangs On

Good Wednesday to one and all. Summertime air continues to take up residence across our part of the world, and this will likely carry us into early next week. Once we get to that point, our colder than normal setup looks to return as we say goodbye to September and hello to October.

There just isn’t  much change to the overall pattern through the rest of the week. Daytime highs are generally from 80-85, but any day featuring more clouds and scattered storms will keep temps in the upper 70s.

Speaking of scattered storms, we have some to track today…

Rubber stamp today’s forecast and play it right on through the coming weekend. Bigger changes move in after that and I will get to those in a moment.

Let’s talk tropics now and give you the latest on Jose and Maria…

Jose continues to weaken as it loops off the northeastern coast…

The loop from Jose will likely draw Maria on a more northward turn, which could spare the east coast. Here’s the track from the NHC…

The pattern flips back to cooler than normal by the middle and end of next week.

Take a look at the 5 day temperature departures from the CFS model over the next 30 days…

 A little world of caution for this time of year… This crazy hurricane season will have a lot to say about these cool shots ahead.

Have a great day and take care.
