Cool At Times, But Bright
Posted by Chris Lambert
The last full weekend in August comes in with lots of sunshine as well as a noticeable change in the atmosphere as the low humidity and clear skies have allowed many of the suburbs to start the morning off near 50 on this Saturday.
With lots of sunshine in place, the dry air warms up nicely inland, as high top off in the upper 70s there. Along the coast, an onshore breeze develops, holding beach temps in the lower 70s. In fact, across the Cape, an active northeasterly breeze at 15-20mph keeps highs near 70 in the sand and with low humidity in place, it's goose bump weather coming out of the ocean as that water quickly evaporates of the body and cools you down quick.
With a clear sky and dry air mass in place, temps tonight tumble. Most suburbs fall into the mid to upper 40s, with lows in the city in the upper 50s. Heading to Country Fest? 5PM temps are around 75 with a tumble to 61 by 9PM.
Sunday is a beauty with inland highs in the lower 80s and coastal temps in the mid 70s. It'll be a bit of a warmer beach day as temps are several degrees higher and winds a bit lighter.
So when will it rain? The dry weather has been great for outdoor activities, but the gardens and lawns could use some water. We'll be able to track a few showers and storms in here late Monday, again on Tuesday as they are hit or miss across the area, and again on Wednesday afternoon/evening as more energy arrives with a cool front late in the day.
Have a great weekend!
