Cooler 2nd Half
Posted by Chris Lambert
We did alright for ourselves on this first half of the weekend as any early morning showers tapered off, and dry weather prevailed. It wasn't a perfect day, but we did catch a few breaks of sun, and combined with comfortable temps, the weather worked out just fine for outdoors plans.
So can we do the same for Sunday? Not quite. I don't want to couch the 2nd half of the weekend a washout, but we'll deal with some scattered showers around. The best chance for them will be the farther north and west you go, and they tend to favor the morning vs. the afternoon. South of the Pike, the afternoon looks rather dry, although highs hold in the low to mid 60s there. North of the Pike, a shower or sprinkle still can't be rule out in the afternoon, but you'll find some dry hours in there too. The cloud cover is solid Sunday, and areas north of the Pike hover in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
Monday, as southerly winds kick in, so does more humid air and warmer temps. Highs Monday reach the mid 70s. They'll be a passing shower at times through the day, but the soaking rains hold off until overnight, into early Tuesday as a cold front barrels in here with some of the remnants of what is Tropical Storm Karen now.
Behind it, we dry out for Tuesday afternoon, and as high pressure anchors in, another dry stretch of weather settles in for at least several days.
