Wednesday Midday Blog: Hot temperatures and a look at the holiday weekend

Good midday Wednesday!  I hope you are having a great day so far.  Mine has been pretty good.  I am a little tired, I couldn’t sleep very well last night.  So I have been up since the crack of dawn this morning.  I have been just running errands and doing stuff around the house.  At least the weather is great across the region.  We do have a few showers just north of us, but most of these will stay north of the viewing area.  Take a look at the radar below.

We will see partly sunny skies once again today with highs right around 90 degrees.

Today

I still think our weather is going to stay pretty consistent all the way through the holiday weekend.  We could see a few changes working in by Labor Day with a few chances for scattered thunderstorms.  However, the better chances will hold off until Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.

Heady Pattern:

The next cycle (which tells me how many days the pattern is cycling) is completely set.  This has been set now for about two months.  It is very hard to see in the summer time and with the old pattern still in place.  However, the old pattern is in massive shifting mode as the new pattern is almost in place.  The new pattern (which tells me how storm systems will react) will be completely set here in about 3 weeks.  I am about 70% sure on what the new cycle length is going to set up at.  I have to continue to watch this over the next several weeks as the new pattern continues to set.  As the Jet Stream continues to get stronger, this will really show itself over the next few weeks.  Check out my long range forecast below.

LONG RANGE FORECAST: Based off of the HP(Heady Pattern)

SLIGHT CHANCES:  MEAN IT IS A WEAKER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US SCATTERED SHOWERS OR SNOW SHOWERS. 

IF I DON’T SAY SLIGHT:  THAT MEANS THIS IS A STRONGER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US MUCH BETTER PRECIPITATION CHANCES

Next Wednesday:  Warm with a few scattered storms.

Next Thursday:  Warm with a few isolated storms.

Next Friday:  Warm with a few isolated storms.

Next Saturday:  Warm with better chances for thunderstorms.

September 13th-19th:

Mild temperatures with rain chances to start the week.  We will warm up by the middle of the week with rain chances returning Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  Also cooler temperatures work back in for Friday and Saturday.

September 20th-26th:

A warm and dry start to the week.  However, thunderstorm chances return for Monday and Tuesday.  Also cooler temperatures work in for the middle of the week.  Mild temperatures stick around the rest of the week with rain chances back in on Friday and Saturday.

September 27th-October 3rd:

A dry and mild start to the week.  Mild temperatures continue for the second half of the week with rain chances on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  Cooler temperatures work in for the weekend.
