The simple weather forecasting continues: sunshine, sunshine, sunshine. And it will stay that way through Thursday. Daytime temperatures will range from near 70 Mon and Tue to the mid and upper 70s by Wed and Thu. The overnights will be mostly in the 40s except rise into the 50 by Thu night due to an increase in clouds.
And if you are looking for rain, you must wait until Friday. Once to Fri the chances of rain increase and we could see our first widespread rain in about a month come over the weekend and then early the following week. A major fight will be engaged between a significant trough trying to move east against the strong western Atlantic ridge that is dominating our weather. This battle will lead to a healthy surge of moisture from out of the tropics and bring us some needed rains for the first part of next week.
Our dry pattern continues, but it will be ending early next week. Do not worry about a drought. Our dry is just surface dry right now, and it bums me out a little to see the grass start to dry up. I love green grass. Brown just doesn’t do much for me. But what can I do? I won’t water it. I’ll just have to wait for some rain. And it will come.
The tropics are all quiet, so no concerns there for now. Some disturbed weather could occur in the Caribbean or southern Gulf of Mexico later this week, but it should not have an impact on us at all in the next 7 days.
The moral is to simply enjoy this beautiful fall weather.
