How about this weather in July? As I talked about in the last post, a cold front moved through allowing for the fall-like temperatures we have been experiencing the past few days. Unfortunately, these will not last long as southern flow will soon return allowing for that humidity to begin climbing back this weekend. Taking a look below, we see why we we have been so clear, and will continue to be, over the next few days. A high pressure system, currently residing in the Indiana region, is dominating much of the mid east.
To emphasize the importance of this ridge, take a look at the NAM 850mb winds run. This model is depicting winds over the next couple of days at the 850mb level. As you can see the stronger winds (shaded green and yellow) are much to our north. This will allow us to continue staying dry and sunny into the weekend. As I said though, don't anticipate this to last as southern flow will return, increasing the chance for afternoon pop up showers and storms by early next week.
As for today and tomorrow, enjoy slightly below average temperatures and lower humidity, which will make things feel rather pleasant. As we work into this weekend it will begin feeling more muggy, but we will stay mostly dry. This weekend would be the ideal weekend for the lake or pool as you can expect mostly sunny skies and average temperatures (upper 80's). Heading into Monday and early next week, shower chances increase. Until then, soak up the rays!
