Monday ended up being an absolutely gorgeous start to our work week; afternoon highs peaked near the mid to low 80s with little to no humidity and plenty of sunshine. Believe it or not, the forecast is about to get even nicer. Tuesday looks as though it will be slightly cooler with a pleasant northeasterly wind flow and just as much sunshine as our Monday. Honestly, our first (and only) hiccup over the next week will occur Wednesday. Expect added cloud over and a few scattered rain showers as a cold front inches closer before swinging through the region Thursday morning.
That passing cold front will play a significant roll in our forecast as we move forward; not only will that passing front usher cooler and more comfortable air into the Ohio Valley, but it will act as a buffer between the Tri-State and the remnants of Hurricane Sally. The tropical system (currently a category 2 hurricane) may drop more than 2’ of rainfall across portions Mississippi, Alabama and Florida between now and Wednesday! Fortunately, our passing frontal boundary will stall Sally’s northward movement once it reaches northern Georgia.
As for the Tri-State, the end of your work week will be nothing short of beautiful. After tipping the scales at just at 81° on Thursday, we’ll only reach 72° on Friday before dropping to our coolest temperatures since mid May; it’ll be 48° on Saturday morning!
Grab your pumpkin spice lattes folks, Fall is the way!
