Weak System Brings Rain Potential Wed Night/Thursday, Continued Warmer than Average 5:00 p.m. Tue 21 October 2014
Look for another warm day Wednesday, but increased cloud cover should knock down highs a few degrees compared to today; many spots were at or above 80 degrees on Tuesday.
A mid-level trough will pass through late Wednesday and into Thursday, and this brings our only significant potential for rain this week. Precipitation amounts are expected to be light at a quarter of an inch or less for most, and even that will be spotty in coverage, hence my chances for rain with this system remain at only at only 20 percent.
An upper ridge builds during the weekend and this feature will help to keep daytime highs well above average – in the low to mid 80s. Overall, it’s a dry and warm forecast for October except for a few showers Thursday.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: Clear to Partly Cloudy…..Lows 53 to 58 Wednesday: Increasing Clouds…..Highs 76 to 80 Thursday: 20% Showers or Storms, Mainly A.M……56/76 Friday: Partly Cloudy…..58/82 Saturday: Mostly Sunny…..59/85 Sunday: Sunny, Windy…..62/87 Monday: 30% Rain Late, Windy…..64/82 Tuesday: 30% Rain A.M., Windy…..55/74
May You Have A Great Wednesday!
