Monday’s little brother storm to the big brother rain storm of last week, was more impressive than the models would have led you to believe, but I was not surprised as you know from my earlier posts. Some impressive downpours if you got one of the storms. And now we are stuck with sunshine, sunshine, sunshine through the end of the week. Nothing to complain about in other words.
There are some challenges this week, but the picture is clearer today than it was on Saturday:
1. Cool Down: Yes it will cool down a few degrees more than I was thinking, more due to cloud cover from big upper level low. Surprised me that the clouds will make it across the mountains pretty well for Wed. Highs will average in the mid to upper 70s for Wed/Thu. Please remember that average highs for this time of year are 80-81 degrees.
2. Warm Up: This will begin Friday and by next Monday we will be making a run toward 90. The heat will continue through all of next week.
3. Hurricane Erika-to-be: Danny has died over the Caribbean. Now we look for the next one. This one, Ericka to be will have a much friendlier atmosphere to work with. Indications favor a threat to the Florida or SE East Coast by Monday at the earliest.
4. Rain: Possibly something over the weekend, focusing more on Sunday. Don’t change outdoor plans though. The next 10 days will be very dry over-all. September ought to be warm and dry, unless we get direct impacts from a Tropical Storm of some kind which can dump a lot of rain. Otherwise a dry month should be coming our way.
