What a refreshing day! It was a rainy and cool day that was more reminiscent of fall than late summer. The week ahead will not be as cool as today, but the week is looking much more comfortable than what we've seen for much of the summer, which is one of the warmest on record.
It looks like our chances for rain will be limited this week, keeping with the dry pattern that we've seen. The best chance of rain will come tomorrow night and early Tuesday, as a front passes through the region overnight Monday. Most of Monday looks nice.
Some lingering showers may be around during the day on Tuesday, but I am not expecting much. Temperatures will rebound from today's cool highs, but will remain fairly comfortable, with daytime highs in the upper 70s to low 80s.
With the exception of the unsettled period highlighted above, things look quiet. The heat and humidity should be kept at bay, but by Friday we begin to warm up just a bit. Conditions should be sunny and nice.
Currently, the weekend is looking quiet. It will likely be a bit warmer on Saturday, but another front is possible by Sunday. That may bring a period of showers in between Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, but right now, I am keeping the threat of rain out of the forecast.
One other thing to mention is that the National Hurricane Center is tracking two areas of interest in the Atlantic. Both have 50% chances of development, though I personally think the odds are higher given the overall development environment. Neither are anything to worry about at the moment, but may be worth a casual eye in the long range. Of course, we'll be watching.
