Tuesday – 6 September 2022 – 2pm update.
The high on Monday at Stevens Field was 88 and the low this morning was 51. Some of you living in and around downtown saw highs in the 90’s yesterday. Our humidity bottomed out at 14% and the airport recorded a 21mph wind gust. Rainfall totals ranged from a high of 0.03 south of town to zero.
The Hell High continues to reside over eastern Nevada and western Utah, giving a good portion of the west some late season sizzling temperatures this week. Our mid-level winds will continue to blow from the NE, wrapping clockwise around the eastern side of the high pressure until this weekend, when a cool front will move through on Saturday. As that occurs, our mid-level winds will switch into the west and may possibly bring in some moisture from what will be dying hurricane Kay. Meanwhile, look for a plethora of towering cumulus clouds each day, with a tiny chance some of those will turn into thunderstorms during the afternoon. With low humidity on the surface, I don’t see much rain accumulating from the storms this week. High temps will continue above average (80’s) through Friday, then drop around normal (70’s) over the weekend as cooler air arrives.
Unless something surprising happens this afternoon, my next post will be on Thursday.
