Forecast: Sunny, Dry And Calm With Highs Around 80

This article is more than 5 years old.

The weather through the rest of the week and into the weekend looks dry and increasingly warm. High pressure will dominate the air during this time and keep any precipitation and even clouds at bay.

Having a dry period like this in September or the first part of October is something that often happens. The cold air hasn’t yet developed to the north and the core of the heat of summer is waning.

The lack of a ton of contrast in temperature this week means there isn’t any storm development.

Eventually, though, a weak front will push through, and temperatures will return to seasonal averages. This should occur late in the weekend.

Humidity will be increasing somewhat this week, but it's unlikely to be oppressive. I still don’t see any significant rain in the forecast even beyond this weekend as next week looks to be quite dry, too.

With the weather so quiet here, it seemed likely things might be active in the tropics. But, with the exception of a couple of systems meteorologists are watching, there are no named storms in the Atlantic.

It bears watching what happens to these weather systems, but if the past few weeks are any indication, they won’t become major storms.


Today: Sunny, with a high around 80.

Tonight: Clear, lows 55-61.

Wednesday: Sunny, with highs in the lower 80s.

Thursday: Sunny, with a high near 85.

Friday: Sunny, with a highs in the lower 80s.

Saturday: Sunny, with a high near 80.
