A September Feel Takes Over

Good Tuesday to one and all. Our weather pattern is taking on the look and feel of September, and I’m not going to complain about that. Much cooler than normal temps are settling in, with a shower chance or two. If you’re missing summer, it should return this weekend.

In the short term, highs today are generally in the low and middle 70s with mainly dry weather. Things will change a bit into Wednesday with more clouds and the threat for a shower or two…

This happens with an upper level low moving into the region. That pops a few more showers into Thursday, with the best chance in the east…

This setup brings MUCH cooler than normal air to the eastern half of the country. Check this out…

Highs for Wednesday and Thursday may struggle into the upper 60s and low 70s across central and eastern parts of the state.

Warmer air moves in this weekend with highs returning to the 80s. There’s a small storm chance as the warmer air moves back in.

Another front tries to drop in here early next week with more showers and storms. Some of the models continue to show something developing in the Gulf during this time…

That setup may knock out temps back down some by the middle and end of next week.

As I have mentioned, it’s going to be awfully hard for any one particular pattern to get established this summer. This is a progressive pattern that can feature frequent rain and storm chances. Eventually, the tropics are going to come to life with this setup and can have a direct impact on our weather. Keep that one in mind. 😉

Make it a great day and take care.

    Thanks Chris, I’am going to predict that the next seven days will be rain free, with warm days and cool nights, also I’am going out on a limb and predict that the tropics will not be active, due to the development of ENSO ( El nino ) latter this summer. Depending, on how strong the El nino is will determine the weather this Fall and Winter. A weak El nino usually brings moderately colder winters to the Ohio River valley, along with above normal snowfall. Example, 1969-70. However, in August 1969 along the Gulf coast, one of the worse hurricanes ever, occurred ( Hurricane Camille ) a cat. 5. This tells me that the El nino didn’t start till latter in 1969. Have a great day everyone.

    I thought this comment was interesting, so I made this information available to everyone, especially to the younger people who are interested in past meteorology. Ralph, don’t you ever have a comment on Chris Bailey’s weather blog. It seems that all your ” comments ” are on my comments. News flash : this is not my blog, it’s Chris Bailey’s blog. Comment on him not me ! Have a great afternoon.

      Schroeder, NOAA is predicting a very active hurricane season due to a non existent to very weak El Nino, above average sea temperatures and a average to weaker than average vertical wind shear. Weather Channel and Accuweather predictions are of a average hurricane season.

      Exactly, it’s Chris Bailey’s weather blog. Nobody cares that you reiterate everything you read.

    Ralph a lot of people like to read Schroeders opinions, including myself. If you don’t like too than skip over his, simple as that.

    Prelude : Thank you for looking this information up for me. We will know by Christmas how the hurricane season turns out. A very weak El nino as you described in the prediction would bring us a horrible, long drought, like we had back in the late 1980’s. Have a great evening.
