Two More Days of Record Heat Before a Cooldown
We’ve been paying the price with the unusually hot daytime and warm nighttime temperatures, but the wait is almost over for Fall weather. Hang on… it’s coming!
There’s a very good chance we will tie or break record highs today and Friday as high pressure remains quite strong at the surface and aloft. Moisture trapped under that ridge of high pressure remains draped across the region, so isolated showers and even a thunderstorm are possible across the next couple of days.
Cold front #1 will move through Friday and finally help kick that high pressure to the curb and allow the cooling down process to begin. A wedge of cooler air sliding down the eastern side of the Appalachians will also help aide in the start of the cool down.
Cold front #2 will have a much stronger influence on the temperatures and bring fall weather to us all next week as it moves through Monday/Monday night. Look for highs in the 70s and 80s and lows in the 60s and some 50s. Awesome!
