Hurricane Kay looks pretty impressive on satellite imagery this afternoon. As she moves NW, we could tap into some of her moisture by this weekend.
Thursday – 8 September 2022 – 1:15pm update.
The high on Wednesday at Stevens Field was 85 and the low this morning was 47. Some of you living in and around downtown saw highs in the low 90’s again yesterday. Our humidity bottomed out at 17% and the airport recorded a 20mph wind gust. Rainfall totals ranged from a high of 0.03 to zero. Most of the activity yesterday stayed to our north and west.
Another 24 hours of above normal temps, then a trough and cold front move through on Saturday, not only cooling us down, but raising our rainfall odds and giving us a mostly cloudy weekend. Our mid-level winds are starting to switch into the west this afternoon, ahead of the trough to our NW. This should drive away most of the smoke by tonight. High temps will continue above average (80’s) through Friday, then drop to slightly below normal (60’s-70’s) over the weekend as cooler air arrives. Lows will be mainly in the 40’s. I’m not seeing any freezes for the next 5 days.
Unless something surprising happens over the next 24 hours, my next post will be on Saturday.
