That headline is correct: One more round of rain, and then a nice stretch of dry and comfortable weather beginning Wednesday night.
I must admit that my forecast from late last week was overly optimistic. I thought Sunday would feature more sunshine than it did ... oops. Today will feature some sunshine, but a lot of clouds also. And tomorrow will have some sun but again a lot of clouds. This is due to a low level easterly/southeasterly flow off of the ocean. We are entering the time of year where this is can become a but more of a forecast issue. We are leaving the heart of summer and entering late summer/early fall weather transition.
Yes, it is only the 20th of August, but our average temperatures for day time highs ar beginning to slide steadily. Our highs should be in the low 80's now, off from the mid 80's a few weeks ago, and by September only around 80. So, the decline is starting,and will only accelerate as we enter in September, October and November.
Back to this week:
I believe tomorrows rain system is the last true excessive rain threat we will have for a while. The next threats will likely be tied to tropical weather systems, if we get impacted by any in the coming couple of months.
Until then, enjoy.
