Forecast: Low Humidity And Warm Temps. Make This Another Ideal Day Of Weather

This article is more than 4 years old.

A clear and dry overnight is now kicking into another sunny day.

The beat goes on with regard to high pressure, sunshine and dry conditions. As I mentioned yesterday, I don’t see any significant rain in the forecast for the next seven to 10 days.

As Hurricane Gaston continues churning out in the Atlantic, it has roughed up the seas a bit. If you are going to the ocean, you’ll want to take a bit more caution when swimming and keep an even closer eye on children.

Rip currents can come up very suddenly and in spite of a nearly cloudless sky a storm hundreds of miles away can affect our beaches. That’s about the only issue I see with regard to any weather problems.

Temperatures and humidity will be lower than they were Monday, when a few spots nudged 90 degrees.  Today will find readings in the lower 80s along with low humidity levels.

On Wednesday, a cold front will be far to our west, but a southerly flow of more humid air and warmer temperatures means it’s back to the feeling of mid-summer.

There could be a few showers or even a thundershower Wednesday night and again Thursday, as this front gets closer and then eventually passes off the coast. Behind it, a new dry air mass will take over and bring us into and through the upcoming holiday weekend. At first it will feel fall-like in the morning Friday and Saturday, but as the air mass modifies, it will become warmer and once again more humidity and some heat look to return in the days following the Labor Day.
