WEATHER NOW: Staying Warm and Sunny Until Rain Returns This Weekend

Forecast

It will stay warm for many days this week, but we likely won’t be as hot or as windy as Monday. Still, this is a great forecast for all the area farmers since they have great conditions to continue on with harvesting.

Tuesday’s formula is almost the same as what it was for Monday, the main difference being less wind. A weak cold front will have come through the area by the morning, and that will drop our temperatures slightly while also weakening the winds. If anything, Tuesday will be an even nicer day than what Monday was.

TONIGHT:

Tuesday night will be a great night to open the windows and allow for the breeze to come through as humidity will be on the lower side and temperatures will be falling to upper 50s and low 60s. A great night for grilling out!

TOMORROW:

THE WEEK AHEAD:

We’ve got a dry forecast for a lot of this week, but rain showers do return by the weekend. This will be coupled with temps in the upper 80s through Wednesday before things cool off a bit when the rain arrives for the weekend.

We’ll be optimistic that the ridge of high pressure will keep rain to the west of us, but we may see batches of cloud cover ahead of it. Any break down in the ridge would allow for rain to creep back in, which is what we think will happen by the weekend.

LONG-TERM FORECAST:

Our 8 to 14 day outlook has trended warmer and drier than normal as we head into the second week of October. Still, we’ll think things are mild for the area.
