This weekend’s weather has been even more stellar than had been forecast. High pressure built in from the NE even more than expected and the forecast of a humidity increase did not occur. Dew points have been in the 40s today and our high temperature of 85 felt extremely comfortable.
The GFS is still predicting an increase in humidity and temperatures for Monday, Labor Day. High temperatures are expected to hit 90, but dewpoints expected to remain in the somewhat comfortable lower 60s.
The GFS forecast appears to be on-track for today. It will be raining for the entire day, with heaviest rain late afternoon (4 PM) into the early evening.
Some uncertainty about Sunday’s cloud cover. The cyclonic flow will result in some degree of cloudiness with sunshine. The NAM suggests the possibility of a brief shower Sunday afternoon due to instability.
The latest models have the rain ending about 9 AM Sunday morning.
The latest NAM has some light showers possible Saturday during the day before the heavy rain moves in during the late afternoon into night. It seems that sunshine, if any, will be limited.
