Summer's Farewell

This is the final weekend of astronomical summer as the Autumnal Equinox occurs at 9:29 PM on Monday.  It's fitting that it ends the way most of the summer has been, Hot but not brutally so.  We have a leftover frontal boundary draped off our coast with a weak disturbance moving along it.  It is causing some showers tonight, but as it passes farther to our south and east on Friday, drier air will filter in behind it.  Morning drive could see a few showers but we should see plenty of sunshine during the afternoon.   IF low pressure forms off the east coast on Saturday, we'll see the northerly flow of dry air increase making for a great weekend.   A cold front arrives Monday night, but it won't pack much of a punch.  No need to get out the sweaters and jackets just yet.

The GFS (American) model run this morning brought a storm into the Gulf just to our west by next weekend.  This model has done that before so I don't get too excited when it does that 10-14 days in advance.  Stay tuned!
