For the third time this month, a cool front chases away July heat. After our hottest days of the year this past weekend, we won’t see 90 degree weather again for the rest of July. As August begins, rain returns to the forecast. The cool weather arrives tonight and we may break a 20 year old record by Wednesday morning. As with all three cool-downs this month, this one won’t last more than a few days. By Thursday, we’ll see a return flow of southerly, more humid air leading to increasing showers and thunderstorms starting Friday and lasting through the weekend.
For the rest of this afternoon, skies remain mostly clear with a steady northwest breeze. By evening, temperatures will slip into the mid 70s and then we head to the mid to upper 60s by Tuesday morning. The sun shines brightly during the day, but you’ll really notice how much drier it feels. Highs only climb to the low to mid 80s. Overnight Tuesday, temperatures slip to 60° or lower, which would set new records for the third time this month. Sunny skies persist Wednesday with a few high clouds increasing by afternoon. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s. Thursday features cloudier skies overall with scattered showers developing by late morning persisting into the afternoon. Highs in the mid to upper 80s again. Friday will be more of a typical August day with very warm weather and scattered showers and thunderstorms by afternoon, highs remain in the mid to upper 80s.
