Autumn arrives this Sunday, Sep 23rd. And after today it will fell more like Autumn. A summer feel for today, IF THE SUN breaks through the clouds. If it does temperatures would make a run to 80 or above. Not sure if we get enough sun though. So mid 70's is probably it. And probably it for summer. Just in time for Autumn.
Highs will reach the 60's for most of next week except for Wed. But even then only low to mid 70's and that for only one day. Times are changing. Cool air moves in tonight and remains with only temporary retreats from here on out it seems.
Our first step down is this weekend into next week The next comes next Fri/Sat. Then early the following week. Not sure how it will all play out, but by the time we get to early Oct frost could be very well be a threat. But Oct usually does that. So not a huge surprise.
Each front will have its own showers/periods of rain with it. Some could be heavy. But the excessive flash flooding rains are done for now. We should stay wet though Autumn. Our first wet period is later Mon - early Wed. Some moisture from the south will move up on Monday into Tuesday and bring a soaking rain to our area. Expect about an inch of rain. Then the front moves through late Tue into Wed. That could bring another half inch.
We dry out then another front come late Fri into Sat and that could bring another half inch to one inch of rain.
Again, wet, but not excessive.
If you are looking for cooler fall-like days ... your wish is about to be granted.
