10/3 – The Chief’s “Beautiful Cruisin’ Weather” Monday Forecast
As an area of high pressure sneaks into the area on the backside of distant low pressure, a warmer pattern takes hold. It’s only a small adjustment to the repeated, lovely pattern we have been seeing over the past week or so. A fizzling frontal system will work through and will only provide a wind shift tonight into tomorrow. High temperatures today will be in the low 80s with lows Mon night a few degrees warmer than tonight. 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. Tue into Wed, the low will push a disturbance through the region but it looks like at most, we’ll see a 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.
