Today will make rain on three of the last four days. It hasn't hit 80 in nearly a week.
Is summer... over?
Don't start penning the eulogy just yet. Summer officially has a good 19 days left on the calendar and it's not going down without a fight.
The short term though is a bit more autumn-esque. A weak trough making its way through the region will keep scattered showers in the forecast this evening and tonight with lows in the mid-upper 50s.
The showers should be done by daybreak so we're expecting a dry Wednesday under eventually partly sunny skies with highs in the low 70s.
We keep a gradual warming trend through the rest of the week with diminishing morning clouds each day and quicker burnout to sunshine. Highs Thursday will be in the mid-upper 70s and we'll be pushing 80 on Friday.
Just in time for the weekend comes the warmest day of the next while as a thermal trough builds and we get a touch of offshore flow. That will blow away any morning clouds and bring sunshine start to finish Saturday with highs getting into the low-mid 80s -- maybe even a few upper 80s in the warm spots away from the water if the thermal trough really gets going.
The thermal trough moves inland Saturday night which should get us a bit of marine push for Sunday and cool us back into the mid-upper 70s. Still dry though! Just some morning clouds.
Another weather system quickly approaches Sunday night and swings through Monday into Tuesday for some stark cooking back to near 70 with a chance of showers. Now is summer over? The long range models seem to suggest a continued roller coaster of sunny and warm then cooler showery periods, so it looks like it might be fighting to stay relevant, if nothing else :)
