WEATHER NOW: Plenty of Sun This Week

Forecast

The cooler air has felt great and it will stick around for a few days. While this forecast is overall pretty quiet, we will notice the temperatures warming up by the weekend when they are back into the 90s. Some haze from Canadian wildfires are possible too, but it shouldn’t be as thick as what it was the other week.

TONIGHT:

Monday night will be another clear and comfortable night with a low of 56 with winds coming out of the northeast at only 2 to 5 mph.

TOMORROW:

Tuesday will be another sunny day with a high of 78. Winds will be from the northeast again at only 2 to 5 mph. Like Monday, we can’t rule out the possibility of a stray shower in the afternoon.

THE WEEK AHEAD:

High pressure will be in place for a lot of this week, especially in the beginning. However, it will slide off to the east throughout the week, allowing hot and humid air to return to the region by the weekend and early next week.

Rain amounts will be very low for the week. We look to only have some Friday morning and then again on Sunday with some storms.

DROUGHT MONITOR:

No surprise here, but the Drought Monitor is all clear thanks to all the rain at the end of June and then in the beginning of July. Rain chances this week are essentially negligible. We keep pushing back chances for a few isolated showers, which could come as early as the weekend.

LONG-TERM FORECAST:

Our 8-14 day outlook is seeing warmer than normal and wetter than normal conditions with both the temperatures and precipitation going into the second week of August.
