Cooling Off

We had a bit of a rough start this morning with the thunderstorms moving through, but since then the weather has stayed fairly nice! That low pressure system that brought us the thunderstorms has been pulling northerly air into our area.  It hasn't done much to our temperatures yet, but it has lowered our humidity quite a bit and has also been clearing the skies.  The skies will continue clearing during the evening, where temperatures will be in the 70°s.  That northerly air will start to impact our temperatures after sunset, cooling us down into the mid 50°s during the overnight tonight. 

A high pressure system will move in from the west tomorrow morning, and will continue that inflow of northerly air into our area.  This will shift the jet stream south of our area, which means we'll see cooler and drier weather, while everyone that's south of the jet stream continues to see the heat and humidity that we've dealt with the past couple of weeks.  Even though our temperatures will be cooler, and it may not necessarily be summertime pool weather, our humidity values will stay low and we'll get to enjoy plenty of sunshine. 

The cool inflow will end on Wednesday when that high pressure system tracks east and another low moves in.  This will bring back the warmth and humidity, but it'll also increase our storm chances.  A cold front will move through late Wednesday night, keeping thunderstorms with us during the overnight.  We'll see some lingering rain on Thursday before the storms return on Friday, where another cold front will move through.  Temperatures are expected to warm back up into the low 80°s by the end of next week.
