UPDATE: 9:40 p.m. No changes to the forecast. Have a great night - Steve ================================
Slowly Heating Up; Continued Dry 4:45 p.m. Mon 29 September 2014
We’re looking at rather hot and humid weather for this time of year Tuesday and Wednesday as southerly wind flow picks up and ushers in a moister air mass. At the same time, the jet begins to dig southward, and this eventually brings a moderately strong cold front through on Thursday.
There will be a well-defined mid-level trough accompanying the surface front, and we will have a humid air mass in place, so thunderstorms are likely. A few could be strong; it will depend on the timing. If the front passes during the morning or early afternoon then the air mass would not have the benefit of peak heating; if however the front comes through later in the day the potential for a few strong storms would increase.
The majority of any severe weather elements are expected to be farther north, closer to the maximum jet stream energy, and the colder air aloft.
A dry and mild air mass moves in behind the front for a dry weekend with clear cool nights in the 50s and sunny warm days in the 80s.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: Low Clouds Form Late…..Lows 61 to 66 Tuesday: Partly Cloudy, Breezy…..Highs 87 to 91 Wednesday: Partly Cloudy, Windy…..68/92 Thursday: 50% Showers or Thunderstorms…..71/86 Friday: Mostly Sunny, Breezy and Cooler…..60/81 Saturday: Sunny Skies…..55/84 Sunday: Sunny Skies …..58/89 Monday: Sunny Skies …..63/89
May You Have a Great Tuesday!
