QUICK COOL SHOT COMING WARM WEEKEND AHEAD
QUICK COOL SHOT COMING WARM WEEKEND AHEAD – Good afternoon everyone. The sun is out and the humidity is slowly starting to dry up with the help of west winds and the absence of tropical moisture. Sunny skies will reign supreme today as we enjoy one more warm day until the cooler air begins to move in. Highs today will be in the low 80’s in most areas, but with the record of 85 degrees back in 1949, it’s highly unlikely we will break it.
Easterly winds take hold late tonight into tomorrow morning with high pressure drifting well to our north and towards Maine/Canada. This will help usher in cooler air but still slightly above normal tomorrow with highs in the low 70’s. Clouds move in with a weak system overnight tomorrow, giving us the chance of some showers. Things will be slow to clear out on Thursday with the core of the cool air moving in and the chance of a few morning sprinkles; highs in the low to mid 60’s on Thursday.
With more sun on Friday, the air will modify slightly, giving us mid to upper 60’s. This cooler/seasonable air will be short-lived though, with fog and drizzle associated with the leading edge of warmer air heading back in overnight Friday and into Saturday. Temps won’t drop much Friday night and only into the low 60’s to near 60, then clouds and sun after some morning fog Saturday; humid and highs in the mid 70’s.
For Sunday, we make another run at 80 again, with clouds and sun, and relatively high humidity. How much sun we get will dictate how high we go. As of now, I’m sticking to 75-80 on Sunday, possibly breaking the 80 degree mark if we get some extra sun in areas. The record of 82 set in 1975, doesn’t seem to be in jeopardy of being tied or broken at this point, unless full sunny skies break out.
The gears of fall are in motion, and even though it doesn’t seem like it locally, the air is beginning to cool down in Canada, spilling into the west, and systems are beginning to move much faster. Snow is beginning to show up in parts of the Nation as well as Canada. However, with low pressure systems moving well to our north, and the jet stream not cooperating in terms of helping to bring the cooler air down for a more significant amount of time, what this means for our are in the immediate future is this – quick shots of cool air, and equally quick shots of well above normal temps.
Eventually, these near or above 80 temps will begin to subside due to shorter days and a changing sun angle. It would take extraordinary circumstances and for all of the right ingredients to come together to break 80 in late October and November. It has happened, but it’s rare. That being said, MANY of our record/near record temps for the first 2/3rds October have been low to mid 80’s, and some of those records are 65+ years old, so this is nothing new or unheard of.
