Monday was a much less humid day with a really nice northerly wind to actually give us just a tiny prelude to Fall. Yep, I said it Fall. OK, I know when it’s still 90+ degrees it’s hard to think of it, but my mother back in TN always says she can see Fall weeks and weeks before it actually gets here. It’s a gene thing …..

Above, NCL contributing photographer, Heidi Crandall, sent us this scene that’s very much a precursor to fall. Bailed up hay out in the field. You know this late in the summer when you see the hay out in the field Fall’s not far off. But not to worry for you Summer folks, there’s still plenty of warm weather to go! Lots …

On the current surface map, high pressure is in control for most of the week. Though still warm, the humidity will be much less than last week.
Current-Sat Surface Map

On the National Forecast Map, high pressure stays in control through Thursday night when a front makes its way across the area. There is a very slight chance for a passing thunderstorm that night. High pressure and fair weather work back in for the weekend. It will be fairly hot during the period, but again lower humidity than last week.

We’re still watching what is now Tropical Depression #4 a long, long way off the SE U.S. coast, but so far it’s still holding together. We are days, at least a week from knowing what this one might or might not do. I’ll keep an eye out and let you know in future updates if it’s up to anything.

  1. Look at the bright side Tommy, it’s only about 100 days until the start of ski season!

    We are so lucky to live in an area where you have four disctinct seasons, but not four extreme seasons.
