Pulling The Fade
Posted by Chris Lambert
Our fun in the sun ends this afternoon as morning sunshine fades behind thickening clouds. As those clouds increase, a few showers break out this afternoon from west to east, with the highest chance for rain late afternoon and this evening. Most of the showers are light, especially the early afternoon ones, but a heavier shower or two is possible near day's end and early this evening. Highs reach the mid to upper 60s around noon, then fall back to near 60 mid to late afternoon thanks to scattered showers. These showers are brought to us by a warm front.
When warm fronts go north, temps and humidity go up. We'll notice the change by Monday afternoon as highs surge into the upper 70s and humidity values increase to sticky levels. That muggy fell to the air also starts us off on Tuesday. Tuesday itself becomes a transition day though with scattered showers and storms early in the AM fading, allowing for mainly dry conditions.
We'll be cooler on Wednesday, only to see a warm front come back through early Thursday, followed by another cold front on Friday. Whip lashed yet? Indeed, fronts waiver back and forth next week, producing scattered showers and storms at times. Keep the umbrella handy, but also expect dry parts of each day as well.
Longer range projections show more stability by next weekend and also cooler air. Hopefully that drier pattern can stick for us heading into the holiday weekend. The upside this week is that we need the rain for the water on the lawns/gardens and certainly could use it to knock down those pollen counts!
Have a good Sunday.
