We have been stuck in this messy weather pattern all week. There is some really warm, muggy air to our south that we have occasionally tapped into. At the same time, there have been a few fronts passing by that have been very strung out– meaning that they don’t have a whole lot of organization to them, they are moving slowly, and that their strength has already peaked. We are going to stay in this pattern through Sunday before we get some changes.
A storm exiting to our south overnight will keep an easterly wind around here through the morning. That easterly wind will keep some clouds, fog, and maybe even drizzle around through the first half of Sunday. Some sunshine will mix with clouds later in the day as that storm gets farther away and a new one starts moving this way. Clouds will come back in on Monday even though that storm won’t get here until Tuesday with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Expect some showers and thunderstorms to linger into Wednesday before the storm moves away.
During this time, temperatures will be running close to or above normal. That normal is now 71 degrees. We will be close to it Sunday before bumping up a little Tuesday and Wednesday. Then, temperatures will drop back down again the second half of the week.
