Hard To Improve Upon

The weather is pretty close to perfection for outside activities. Get outside and capitalize if you are able. Sunshine dominates throughout most of this week. Temperature moderation that commenced over the weekend will culminate through the early and middle part of this week, reaching 5-10 degrees above normal before trailing-off by Friday. No rain is in sight just yet.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure will dominate our weather until a backdoor cold front sags southward on Wednesday. This front is moisture starved and will produce no change in sensible weather other than a barely-perceptible shift in wind direction. Warm, late summerlike conditions will prevail through Thursday.

For Friday through next weekend, high temperatures may be a notch cooler, but it will still be remarkably nice around the region. We will have to see if a frontal system gets close enough to produce some showers immediately after this 7-day forecast concludes.

The Tropical Atlantic Ocean remains near the climatological height of the hurricane season. We have major hurricane Sam churning over the open waters of the Atlantic. However, it’s a ‘fish storm’ and will remain out to sea. Other tropical waves in the Atlantic bear watching for future development.
