Think about it.
Here’s what’s up with the weather. The Summertime pattern is here and will continue into next week, despite a cool interruption along the way. But to get there, we have to go through several more warm to hot days. However, Tuesday’s oppressive dew points will be gone for midweek as it is somewhat less humid and not as hot, but still quite warm. By Thursday night and Friday, the humidity will return as high pressure which moves in behind a cold front Wednesday slides offshore by then. The next front will approach this coming weekend, but at this point the timing of this front is uncertain. I have been leaning toward a slower timing, and continue to do this. This scenario would mean a hot/humid Saturday but a thunderstorm threat potentially for late day or night, and an unsettled day with cooling air for Sunday. If things move along enough, we may enjoy a cool/dry day Monday before another warm-up ensues.
