DAYS 1-5 (JUNE 28 – JULY 2)
High pressure will bring two wonderful early summer days today and Wednesday, and Thursday says “hey wait, I wanna be wonderful too!” Well, I think it will. The details of each day will be determined by the position of governing high pressure, which sitting to our west today brings mild and dry air with a general land breeze, and sitting overhead Wednesday brings lighter wind, warming air, but cooling coastal sea breezes. But we have a little interruption Wednesday night to deal with, that many people may not even notice, and that’s a trough sliding across the area from west to east. This weak, fast-moving system will bring clouds and perhaps a passing shower, but will be gone before the sun comes up Thursday, which will be a bright and warmer day as another high builds in. By Friday, this high will slide offshore into the perfect position to deliver us some summer heat, and an increase in humidity, though not to oppressive levels on that particular day. We will get our humidity spike on Saturday as a cold front approaches, triggering the chance of showers and thunderstorms. The coverage and intensity of showers and storms will be depending on the sun’s heating before the front’s arrival and the timing of the front as it crosses the area. This aspect of the forecast will be fine-tuned as we draw closer to its occurrence, so for now the forecast wording will be more generalized.
