09/22 – Brantly’s “First Day of Fall” Wednesday Morning Forecast
Cool, dry, the sound of a nice bonfire roaring and smell of pumpkin spice in the air. We have made it to the first sampling of fall before we really feel like fall sometime in November. High pressure will begin to build to our northwest allowing for surface northerly winds to re-enforce the surface cool air. Rain chances will be nothing short of a fairy tale with overall calm conditions and dry air everywhere.
The main thing will be temperatures with dewpoints cratering into the low 50s Thursday night. Low temperatures will be driven by strong cooling Thursday night leading to lows in the low 50s inland to mid 50s right along the coast. Highs on Friday will be cooler but with the dry air we should have a rather strong temperature swing leading to highs in the upper 70s to low 80s. A gentle north wind might be enough to combat the daytime heating and keep temperatures lower than forecasted. Lows Friday night will once again drop down into the 50s; however, they will be slightly warmer as the cool air slowly mixes with each day.
Saturday into early next week, the overall forecast for the extended time frame is still expected to continue to remain pleasant. Expect high temperatures to gradually climb back into the mid 80s, with dewpoints rebounding into the 60s early next week. Rain chances are also nearly non-existent for the bulk of the forecast period, only climbing to about 20% at the end of the forecast. This is due to the shift in the winds back to a southerly flow.
