Not Feeling The Fall
Posted by Chris Lambert
Walk out the door yet this morning? Wow! The high humidity hits you right away and with such an unstable and soupy air mass in place, the atmosphere has had no issues firing off downpours.
When it rains, it rains hard, but we also have seen some lulls between storms. That trend continues throughout the morning, with showers and storms becoming fewer this afternoon. Even a few breaks of sun appear this afternoon, although, any sun could help re-fire a few more storms. Highs reach the lower 80s and with dewpoints in the lower 70s, it'll feel like a muggy July day, not September.
We'll dry out tonight, but still remain on the muggy side with lows in the middle to upper 60s. Tomorrow looks dry as well.
Couple things to watch over the weekend... 1) Leslie 2) Timing any rain.
Leslie right now appears to favor a pass several hundred miles off our coastline, keeping her rains and winds offshore. However, it's close enough and spends enough time over the Atlantic that it will continue to produce a pounding surf with rip currents and possible beach erosion an issue extending into early next week. We'll continue to track Leslie through the week.
Timing any rain from us will also be a bit of a challenge as a system tries to work in from the west. As of now, much of Saturday appears to be dry, followed by the risk of showers and storms working in Saturday night and Sunday.
