After a warm and muggy week spotted with isolated afternoon (and early morning) thunderstorms, meteorological summer looks to finish on a decidedly summer-like note as an indecisive front means isolated storms into the weekend.
Friday Frontal Migration
The frontal boundary which passed through the area earlier this week as a cold front will begin to migrate back northward as a warm front and this means rain chances to start the holiday weekend.
There’s not a whole lot of wind shear in the atmosphere, which means thunderstorms should stay put and dump rainfall over one fixed location and this can mean quick flash flooding.
The good news is that we’re not expecting too many isolated thunderstorms, which means many of us will miss out on the rainfall. Outside of said rainfall, partly sunny skies will prevail. However, we will remain hot and muggy with high temperatures near the 90º mark and dew points over 70º. You know, typical summertime weather, fitting perfectly with the last day of meteorological summer. Things clear out at night, with temperatures near 70º.
Remarkably Similar Saturday
While Saturday may be the beginning of meteorological fall, no one seems to have told Mother Nature, which will resulted in remarkably similar conditions for Saturday.
Isolated thunderstorms are once again possible with a high near 90º as the stationary front hovers in the area. Any convection would develop in the afternoon and should die down as night falls, but lows remain in the realm near 70º .
A Sunday Between Systems
The low pressure system whose cold front has been impacting us during the week will begin moving to the east.
But not everything is perfect as another system will be approaching from the west.
And this means the continued possibility of wet weather. It’s not a great possibility but with hot and muggy conditions featuring temperatures near 90º, the potential exists for a few more isolated thunderstorms around to cool off the late summer heat. Any storms that diminish will leave behind partly cloudy skies and a low near 70º.
