Good afternoon and what another gorgeous day it is! Comparing expected highs today to the average for this time of the year, we are running 2-8 degrees cooler. This, unfortunately, won't last too long as temperatures increase through the weekend and into early next week.
Taking a look at the CONUS drought map, the eastern half of the US remains fairly normal. Oppositely, the West is dealing with major drought and ongoing wildfires. With little rainfall expected in these locations, activity is likely to continue throughout the Fall.
Overall, the weather ahead is pretty laid back. Sunshine will dominate through early next week with temperatures increasing Sunday and into the work week. Highs today are in the low 80s with upper 80s to low 90s Monday and Tuesday.
