Today's Weather: Another Nice September Day

It's another beautiful day across the region with plenty of sunshine and seasonably mild temperatures.

It's worth a reminder that average readings this time of the year are in the mid-70s. But a better way to think about average temperatures is that most days are few degrees below or above the seasonal normal. That will be the case for most of the next few days.

There might be a brief sprinkle late tonight or early Wednesday, as much warmer and more humid air moves into the region. This will boost temperatures into the 80s for Wednesday. I'm going to leave the chance for showers in the forecast for Thursday with temperatures closer to but above norms.

Cooler air arrives behind the frontal system on Friday. This front does not bring any precipitation, just a change in air mass. The cool won't last long as milder air will arrive again on Saturday and likely last into Sunday and Monday. I think more 80 degree weather is in the future.

We are quite dry right now, so if you are done with seeding a lawn or moving plants, be sure to water well. The sun is weaker, but still packs a punch and the air dries out the soil rather fast.
