Warm Week Ahead

The warming trend continues today, as astronomical summer is nearing its end and astronomical fall starts on Thursday. An area of high pressure sits over the area, bounded by a stationary front along the eastern coast of the United States and a cold front to the northwest, trapping the high pressure in between. A sweltering start to the fall season with high temperatures continuing throughout the week of staying in the upper 80s to  low 90s degree range, low temperatures sitting around the low to mid 60s. Not much change in this pattern for the week. There will be a light, Northeasterly wind blowing through the area today in the afternoon hours continuing through the night.
