Pattern Change Coming. Rain Chances Monday, First Taste of Fall.
September 25, 2016 Leave a comment
Finally, a change to this unbearably warm pattern is on the way. Monday morning looks like another mild start, with temperatures climbing in the afternoon. Some much needed rain is in the forecast for Monday, although as drought conditions continue to get worse, the spotty shower and storm coverage Monday afternoon and evening likely won’t make any drastic improvements to our drought situation.
Monday is also our last day in the 90s for a while. Sunshine returns Tuesday, and brings with it a significant change in temperatures. Highs will only be topping out in the low to mid 80s this week, and low temperatures will be topping out in the mid 50s to around 60. This week won’t exactly be frigid, but it will be a nice relief from the heat we have been dealing with all summer long.
Monday Bus Stop Forecast: Mild morning, but hot in the afternoon. Be sure to pack some rain gear with the kids, as a few scattered storms will be possible when they come home from school.
We are continuing to monitor this tropical wave, Invest 97-L, in the open Atlantic. It is moving westward at about 20 mph, and has a high likelihood of developing into a tropical cyclone in the next 5 days as it enters the southern Caribbean Sea. We are still about 2 weeks away from this having any impact on US weather, but as we enter the peak of hurricane season in the Atlantic basin, this will be a system everyone on the WVUA23 weather team will monitor closely.
