We’re a lot closer to where we “should” be this time of the year thanks to an early week cold front. Temperatures are running a little cooler or a little warmer, but we’re still feeling good outside. The most important temperature is the dew point which has slid into the upper 40s or low 50s. This drier air is making it feel more like fall outside.
This fall feeling has been a blessing. Sure, we’d probably want the rain more than the cooler air, but it’s nice to get away from the heat and humidity for a stretch. Temperatures will remain warm in the afternoons and cool in the mornings for a few days. A southerly wind tomorrow will help boost us back up into the middle 80s. Chances for showers will also go up on Thursday thanks to a second cold front moving in. This front will not be as strong as its predecessor, but it will bring in at least a chance for some of the wet stuff. Temperatures will not cool after the passage of this front. In fact, high pressure will strengthen almost immediately after it passes, and we get a southerly wind quickly. What this means for us is a quick rebound in temperatures and a pronounced dry/heat stretch starting this weekend.
