Another stellar weekend

One thing we haven’t seen a shortage of in recent weeks are nice weekends. And we’ll be adding to that with this weekend.

TODAY

Expect plenty of sunshine again today. It will be a few degrees cooler than yesterday, as a reinforcing shot of cool, dry air arrived late Thursday afternoon. Just nice.

WEEKEND

Saturday looks fantastic, with plenty of sunshine and continued low humidity. Temperatures will be a little warmer than today, with highs in the low 70s likely. Sunday sees the familiar return flow off the Gulf kick in. Temperatures will warm up, and we should test the mid or upper 70s. As high pressure exits, winds will shift onshore and humidity will begin to rise. By Sunday evening, dewpoints back into the 60s will be a good bet, so it’ll begin to feel slightly uncomfortable. But Sunday should be rain-free.

NEXT WEEK

We still have some details to iron out, but there are a very small handful of similarities to this week’s storm system (for us). Monday will have a slight, minor shower chance, along with perhaps some fog. Tuesday will also have a minor shower chance. As of now, the “main event,” if you will, should occur Tuesday evening or overnight, with a cold front and some rain, before cooler, drier air moves in for midweek. This shouldn’t be quite as active as the front we saw this week (and recent model trends argue it will be way less active), but with 3-4 days to go, we’ll keep an eye on it.
