With skies cleared out and temperatures below normal, it has been a gorgeous day so far. This view comes courtesy of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Be sure to get out and about today & tomorrow, as highs will be in the upper 70s and low 80s along with low humidity.
As you can see below, most of the Eastern US is running 5-10 degrees cooler this afternoon and with northerly flow in place, even cooler temps are in store for Friday. Working towards the latter half of the weekend, high pressure will shift east allowing for a more southerly component. This means increased humidity and temperatures Sunday and into early next week.
With high pressure dominating, there is little in the way of rainfall for the next several days. In fact, our next real rain chance doesn't arrive until Wednesday when a cold front pushes across the area.
Enjoy this early Fall-like feel. September marks the beginning of meteorological Fall and I think Mother Nature has caught on to that....for now. Rain chances and increased temps/humidity arrive next week.
