1. Our dry streak across the region continues. However we have a low pressure system moving across the great lakes today which will bring with it a week cool frontal passage through the region. Moisture return ahead of the front will be in a narrow zone immediately ahead of the front as the atmosphere will not be able to moisten up ( yesterday relative humidites near 30%) sufficiently enough to produce anything more than scattered showers and thunder. Highs should be able to reach the lower 90’s with southerly advection ahead of the front even with some increase in clouds late.
2. Tomorrow the front departs the region with clearing skies by the afternoon and a switch in wind direction which should keep highs Wednesday near 80. However I could see clouds and isolated activity hang on in the morning.
3. Our next real chance for rain may be Friday from the leftovers of tropical storm Hermine which currently over south Texas.
4. This will be the first day of daily discussions on the blog as we resume a normal schedule with classes back in session. We will also have several new authors in addition to myself. Tomorrow I will provide a quick update on the weather followed by an overview of our new WRF model.
