Extending The Streak
Posted by Pete Bouchard
A little cool for some this morning. Overnight lows were in the low 40s (in isolated spots) in the suburbs. Most of us fell in the upper 40s to low 50s, however.
After a morning stroll in the cool air, something struck me. No, it wasn't a deer fly (although there were plenty of those trying to carry me away). It was the time. A quarter of nine in the morning, and we're still in the 50s? Telltale sign of autumn there: the sun likes sleeping in later and later these days.
Nonetheless, we're still living large:
We're on a roll this week. Will we keep the momentum going through Friday? Not quite. There's a weather system that wants to sneak in here for a few days later this week. With it stalled front, we're game for showers and scattered storms (on Thursday afternoon) and straight up downpours (on Friday). Timing the downpours on Friday is tough this far out, but suffice it to say that we could get an all-day rain if things set up just right.
Humidity will rise in tandem with the shower threat. Sticky days are ahead on Thursday and Friday. With a swift moving jetstream, however, the front and all its vestments will be swept offshore by the wee hours Saturday morning.
That sets us up for a fine stretch of weather into next week. My only worry? When it will end. So far, I'm seeing beautiful weather straight through to Friday! 'Course, that's the current thinking now, and while the 7day forecast is hardly gospel, it's the best we got.
