The beat goes on: Lots of sunshine and warm summer-like temperatures through Friday, and yes, continued dry. Thankfully we got a soaking rain Sunday night into early Monday, as the next seven days look dry, dry, dry with only the slightest chance for a shower Friday night as a significant cold front drops south out of Canada.
It is significant because of the much cooler air that will move in behind that front. We will have highs in the 60s for Sun and Mon and low 70s for Sat and next Tue. So that is a big change. But how cool is this cool air? Not really all that cool.
Our average high temperature at the end of September is in the low 70s, and overnight lows typically drop to the low 50s. So the “cool” air is pretty close to what one would expect. It’s just that our temperatures have been so very warm, it will feel cool or “fall-like”.
By the middle of next week, a big trough looks to be sitting somewhere to our west. This may help initiate a southerly flow of moisture. Being slow moving, it could bring a good rain to us. But this is beyond the seven-day forecast. It’s just food for thought. Also, these next few days of low/mid 80s for highs are likely the last several days stretch of 80 degree temps. We might reach 80 again, but not for several days in a row. So the endless summer is coming to an end very soon.
