Hot Skies Ahead, but Cooler for the Weekend
5:00 p.m. Tue 13 October 2015
Tuesday saw deep blue skies, dry air and light winds, but continued very warm temperatures for October. It will be another cool night with lows in the 50s, but since winds have returned to the southwest, we should run a few degrees warmer for Wednesday morning.
Southwesterly surface winds and sinking air aloft will make for more unseasonably hot weather for Wed-Thu with highs in the low to mid-90s: close to record heat.
A new cold front arrives Friday and once again strong north winds come in behind it. This front has another dry air mass with it, making for cool nights but days that are still rather warm (not as hot as I expect for Wed and Thu).
The next hope for rain is the middle of next week as a new cold front arrives; strong southerly surface flow is expected for several days ahead of it; this should bring enough moisture northward for a chance of showers and storms is it moves through.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: Clear, Breezy, Cooler….Lows 49 to 55
Wednesday: Sunny, Record Heat…Highs 92 to 96
Thursday: Sunny, Breezy, Record Heat…..60/94
Friday: Mostly Sunny, Windy…..64/84
Saturday: Sunny Skies…..55/79
Sunday: Sunny Skies…..52/81
Monday: Sunny Skies, Windy…..58/82
Tuesday: Partly Cloudy, Windy…..63/79
