Nothing Too Crazy On The Horizon

September 18, 2009

This is the time of year that can get really boring for a weather person. Lets amend that statement to say “if there are no hurricanes”. Yeah, that fits a bit better. Our cut off low in the upper levels has been failing miserably at producing consistent rain for us, and is finally exiting the area. That makes for a good weekend, but a potentially stronger system next week. Here’s the forecast.

Friday: Morning clouds will give way to partly sunny skies in the afternoon. There is a 40% chance for thunderstorms with highs in the middle 80s. Our wind will be variable around 5-10 mph.

Friday Night: There could be a few sprinkles, but most of us will stay dry. Lows will be near 70.

Saturday: Partly sunny with a 30% chance for thunderstorms. Highs will be in the middle to upper 80s.

Saturday Night: Partly cloudy with lows near 70.

Sunday: Partly sunny with a 20% chance for thunderstorms. Highs will be in the upper 80s to near 90.

Monday through Thursday: Things will pick up a bit as a strong system digs in from the northwest. Thunderstorms are possible each day with a 30% chance Monday, and a 40% chance Tuesday through Thursday. Highs will be in the middle to upper 80s with lows falling from near 70 into the middle 60s.

All in all, nothing too terrible. Cooler air masses are starting to form over Canada, and it’s just a matter of time before we get to enjoy that! Here’s to a nice chilly fall, and if I get my way….. at least one snow this winter!
