Not the brightest of days today. The sun remained mostly in hiding, but the humidity surged ahead and the temperatures leveled off in the 70s. Late clearing salvaged the evening…and sets us up for a stupendous Wednesday.
I might be guilty of overselling this day at the beaches/coast. The wind will be brisk off the water and the air will be cool – one of those “so-so beach days” I talked about last week. Use your discretion before you roll out the towels and pitch your umbrella in the sand.
Sun will hold through the early part of Thursday before the clouds return. Another front may trigger showers overnight, but a quick exit Friday morning will keep the day bright.
We’re watching T.S. (soon a Depression) Bill in Texas. Same ‘ol same ol’ here. Rain where they don’t need it – to the tune of 2-8 inches in some spots! The soon-to-be remnants of Bill will round a big high pressure system – the same that’s frying the Carolinas now with highs around 100 – and head north/northeast in the coming days.
This may mean eventually he’ll turn his eyes on us…unfortunately in time for the weekend. This far out, it’s hardly a forecast to set you plans by. Some weather models put Bill’s rain and downpours near Montreal, others near New York City. As we get closer to the weekend, we’ll narrow that uncertainty. Until then, enjoy the sun and seasonable temperatures.
