Be sure to follow the WATE 6 On Your Side Storm Team:
Rain chances remain rather low, but at least some “less hot” temperatures settle in for a few days late week.
- Tonight: Mild with a few clouds around. Low: 67°.
- Wednesday: Variably cloudy and warm with just a few spotty P.M. storms around (30%). High: 90°.
- Thursday: A little cooler with a mix of sun and clouds. High: 83°.
The well above average pattern and dry we’ve been stuck in for a while loosens its grip just a bit for the second half of the work week.
We will still see a few lingering clouds around overnight, but it will be dry and mild with lows in the mid to upper 60s for most areas.
It looks warm again Wednesday with highs in the upper 80s close to 90° again, but we will see a few more clouds and a least a slight chance for some random P.M. showers/storms. It won’t be enough to green up the lawns and gardens, but it may be enough to settle the dust in a few spots.
One thing we will notice though is some less hot and drier air settle into the region later Wednesday into the weekend. An area of high pressure sitting across the Northeast will settle slowly southward allowing for a brief break in the higher humidity levels.
Overnight lows will be quite comfortable Friday through Sunday with most areas in the 50s, but other than Thursday afternoon only reaching the lower 80s, we will see the afternoon highs right back into the mid to upper 80s Friday into early next week. This means the only taste of fall we will feel will be the early morning hours the second half of the week. And other than Wednesday, rain chances look to be non-existent Thursday through Sunday as more sunshine settles in.
A weak front approaches the region late Monday into early Tuesday, but there won’t be a lot of moisture with it, meaning rain chances return, but once again they look low and coverage looks spotty at best. So, even though Monday will be the first day of fall, we will continue with this summer-like pattern through the rest of September the way it looks right now.
