Good Monday to one and all. We’re slowly coming out of our fall preview of a weather pattern and going into one more typical of this time of year. Temps will warm toward normal readings and that will feel downright toasty after we’ve been spoiled of late.
Warm does not equal hot and this week will be remembered more for the muggy factor and daily storm threat.
Here’s the pattern through Thursday…
Moisture from the Gulf of Mexico will combine with a weakness in the atmosphere to spit out clusters of showers and storms. While this will be a daily occurrence, it doesn’t mean it’s going to rain each day where you live. Where it does rain… it may come down in buckets and cause some local high water issues.
Tuesday and Wednesday may offer the best threat for heavy rains. The NAM shows the moisture supply I’m talking about…
Temps are going to be a tough call and any one day can feature a big swing. Highs will generally run in the 80-85 degree range outside of any storms with lows in the 60s. Any day that features more clouds and rain will act to keep highs way down into the 70s.
A cold front approaches the state by the end of the week, but never actually passes through here. It should touch off a few more storms…
Friday is the start of high school football and we could deal with a storm or two around kickoff.
The overall cool pattern we’ve had is relaxing over the next few weeks and that MAY allow us a shot at a 90 degree temperature.
Signs continue to point toward a couple of nice looking cold shots as we get into September. The analogs and the pattern are both on the same page. Speaking of cold shots… I’ll share some new computer model forecasts for the winter before the week is out.
Have a great day and take care.
