Hold The Line
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Another stellar day! That makes three cloud-free days in a row.
Have the shorter days gotten your attention? Here is the official rankings for daylight lost per month. We really chew through the time next month, but then put on the brakes in November and December. (Heck the days are so short by then, who even notices that 10 min, right?)
Still bright tomorrow, but some clouds will sneak through our mighty dome of high pressure - I'm seeing some of the wispy variety in the afternoon. Certainly not a call to arms, but a sign that things are starting to move in the upper atmosphere.
The front we're eying in the Upper Plains has some showers smattered along it, and since it's the only game in town, we can see it coming three days out. Confidence is high on some wet weather for at least the first half of Sunday. There are some indications that the second half could be wet as well, but I'm not ready to sell out the entire day just yet.
Humidity will climb noticably in the coming days. It's not because it's all that humid inasmuch as it's just a stark contrast to the recent bout of dry air. Dewpoints will climb to the low/mid 60s by Sunday, fueling those random showers.
We'll resume the cool mornings, sunshine and blue skies starting next Monday and possibly stretching through to next weekend.
