10/3 – Rob Knight’s “Sunny & Warm” Monday Afternoon Forecast
After a cool start, temperatures have warmed into the upper 70s/low-80s. A quiet weather pattern will continue through the workweek prior to the next frontal boundary Friday. High temperatures this afternoon will be in the low 80s with lows tonight a few degrees warmer than last night. The previously-mentioned system will come through early Tuesday and bring high-level clouds with a wind shift.
The distant low weakens and the high pressure will scoot slightly east. Tuesday into Wednesday, the low will push a disturbance through the region but it looks like at most, we’ll see mid-to-upper-level clouds and a wind shift. The shifting winds will bring increased humidity and skies will go from clear to more partly cloudy as we move mid-week. A weak system brings a weak cold front late Friday into Saturday. It doesn’t look like it will produce any rain with how dry it has been what we’ll see as we get closer. I’m leaving a twenty-percent chance in case of isolated showers prior to the frontal passage.
This weekend looks to see a return to dry conditions, with cool and clear nights in the mid-50s, potentially nearing 50 inland. Highs will be around 80 with clear-to-fair skies in the afternoons.
