It is somewhat hard to believe that meteorological summer has reached its final month. We have yet to see a temperature in the 90s yet this summer, but thanks to several rounds of severe weather and plenty of rain in July our precipitation total is still over 2" above average. You may need to get out the watering can in the next few days as a stretch of nice, dry weather continues for much of this week.
The sky is clear and we'll see plenty of sunshine today along with very comfortable conditions thanks to the low humidity. Temperatures this afternoon will be topping out in the upper 70s. This is a bit cooler than average (usually in early August our highs are in the low 80s) and will certainly feel like a change from yesterday since Sunday saw highs mainly in the mid 80s with a good deal of moisture in the air making it feel more sticky. Winds will also be on the breezy side this afternoon as the northwest flow continues and winds could gust up to 20 miles per hour.
Tonight will be clear and even cooler as temperatures fall closer to the low 50s. Some areas may see temperatures about ten degrees below average as we normally see lows around 60° by this time in summer.
Plenty of sunshine, Tuesday with lighter winds and highs again in the middle and upper 70s. The quiet weather should continue through Wednesday, but there is still some question as to the timing of the next system, which will bring a chance for rain and thunderstorms back into the area. Right now it looks like Thursday and Friday will be the next potential for wet weather. Between now and then, temperatures will slowly be rising back into the low 80s, which is a little more typical for late summer.
The weekend looks to be off to a dry start at this point, but by Sunday some showers and storms may work back into the forecast. Temperatures this weekend should be seasonable in the low 80s.
