Same Old Thing, For Now

August 19, 2009

Thank God we don’t have to worry about Bill in the Gulf of Mexico! With any luck, Bill will curve just far enough east to miss the U.S and Canada altogether, though it’s still certainly going to be too close to make that call. Here locally we’ll see more storms each afternoon for the rest of the week followed by a nice little gift over the weekend. Here are the details.

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy with a 60% chance for mainly afternoon thunderstorms. Highs will be in the lower 90s, with southeasterly wind around 5-10 mph. That wind will be much stronger near storms.

Wed. Night: Partly cloudy with a few storms possible in the evening. Lows will be in the lower to middle 70s, with light and variable wind.

Thursday: Becoming mostly cloudy with a 50% chance for thunderstorms. Highs will be in the lower 90s.

Thursday Night: Partly cloudy with a low in the lower to middle 70s.

Friday: Becoming mostly cloudy with a 60% chance for thunderstorms. Highs will be around 90.

Saturday through Monday: All three days look dry aside from a very early shower perhaps on Saturday morning. The “gift” I speak of is lower humidity. It looks like we’ll see a pretty good cold front roll through. While it won’t get much cooler, the humidity will certainly make the heat index drop, and overnight lows will follow suit. Highs for the period will be in the lower to middle 90s, and lows will be in the middle to upper 60s. Not bad!
