That about sums it up: DITTO.
It is getting difficult to describe this weather. How many ways can you say “Sunny”? Flowers love it. And so do we.
Two days of rain so far this month, and 14 days of at least mostly sunny weather. Noteworthy is the Lower Susquehanna River Valley. Those two days of rain gave many 4” – 7” of rain. So even if it fails to rain the rest of the month, it will be above normal for these areas! Just another reason to know that statistics do not tell the whole story.
Will it be dry for the rest of the month? It is possible. Unlikely. But possible.
Weak frontal passages with sprawling areas of high pressure will dominate our weather through the next 10-14 days which takes us to the end of September. So yes our next decent rain may not be until Oct. Or will something else impact us?
The tropics are showing signs of life. One area to watch is off the South Atlantic Coast (FL, GA, SC). This area, if it were to develop could push north and west and impact our area the middle of next week. But that is far from etched in stone. It may not develop at all, and if so it will stay sunny and dry. It will need to be watched.
Here are the weather points:
1. Rain: Slight chance late Sat night, and early Sun. Otherwise dry.
2. Warmth: Summer like lower 80s in the afternoons, and fall-like 50s in the mornings through Friday.
3. Cooler Air: Front passes Saturday and air turns much cooler Sunday into next Tue. No more widespread 80s for several days in a row once past Sat.
4. Winds: Somewhat gusty on Saturday prior to front and Sunday after front as air mass changes.
5. Tropics: Watching South Atlantic Coast. Slow development could occur. Set up is good for it. Any impact would wait until after next Tue.
Thursday: 84. Mostly sunny. Warm.
Friday: 86. Mostly sunny. Warm.
Saturday: 83. Partly to mostly sunny. Warm. Breezier in afternoon.
Sunday: 70. Clearing. Slight chance early shower. Breezy at times.
Monday: 68. Mostly sunny. Cool.
