Happy Monday to all! We can finally breathe a sigh of relief as cooler air is working back in. Yesterday afternoon we set a new high temperature record (for the 29th) with a high of 78 degrees, previously being 71 (in 1954).
As you can see, much cooler air is set to work through today and tomorrow. With temperatures already 10 to 15 degrees cooler than 24-hours ago, expect high's to be near average Tuesday (mid to upper 40's). As for today, it'll be breezy with gusts up to 25 mph. Temperatures will stay comfortable (for this time of the year) in the mid 50's under partly sunny to sunny skies.
Looking ahead through this week, we will stay dry and comfortable the next several days before a system to the south arrives by late work week.
As seen from the surface map, the system to the north will continue to work north and east bringing snowfall to the Great Lakes and New England states, but keeping things dry here at home. Working into Thursday, a system from the Gulf will arrive bringing showers through the day, into Friday, and eventually moving out Saturday.
For now, enjoy the average to above average temperatures before we gradually warm back up into the 60's Friday. Don't forget to sign up to get this years almanac at SecretCityWeather.com/almanac. Have a good one!
