MONDAY Update:   Extended String of Warm, Dry, Comfortable Days

Good Morning!  We are on cruise control for the next several days.  We obviously need rain, but the rain prospects for the next seven days is dismal. But, if you like comfortable temperatures, the news is good.  Days will be warm for late October.  Nights will be mild.  Upper Level High pressure is in control. This will keep us warm, storm-free and dry for several days, at least through next weekend. Here’s my brief forecast discussion.

TODAY:   Mostly sunny. Comfortable.  High near 82.  East wind 5 to 10.    Partly cloudy tonight.  Low 55.

NEXT FEW DAYS:   Normal high is 79, low 52.  Expect a beautiful late October week. Comfortable.  The rain prospects for the next seven days is dismal.   Normal high is 78, normal low is 52.  We should be above normal for several days.  Each day will be 80 or above.  Not bad for late October.

An upper Ridge of High Pressure is in control.  It will keep us warm.  Storm-free.  But, unfortunately dry.  Probably no rain through the end of the month.   

 We need rain, but it looks we will see another long, extended string of dry days.  Here’s the expected rainfall for the next seven days.  The middle of the country will be very wet and stormy.

TROPICAL UPDATE: 80 mph Hurricane Tammy has now cleared the islands and is in the Atlantic. There is much model disagreement in Tammy’s future.  Will Tammy’s track eventually bend westward?   Meanwhile, in the SW Caribbean, there’s Invest 95-L, which down the road, appears to be a Pacific problem.  The Pacific side is busy with Norma and Otis. 

Here’s the EURO Ensembles on the future of Tammy.

Thanks for reading this Blog this morning! This morning we are LIVE on the radio from 6 to 9 on NewsTalk 93.1.    I’ll have another update for you in the morning.  Have a nice day!
