Cool, dry, comfortable week ahead


Dry conditions are expected to continue this week as temperatures drop overnight into the mid-50s.

“That will be the first time we drop below 60 in ten days,” said Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson.

Clouds will clear out tonight and some patchy fog may develop in areas that recently received rainfall.

With high temperatures in the mid-70s, Simpson said Tuesday will be the coolest day of what should a cooler, more comfortable week.

Wednesday will have a little more sun and temperatures will rise to near 80.

Thursday will have lows in the upper-50s and highs around 80. Simpson said a weak system will pass through but it’ll be too dry for any rain.

Friday looks to be sunny and warm but not humid.

“Football games will be great with temperatures in the 70s,” Simpson said.

The next chance for rain looks to be next Monday.

“This dry weather is actually typical of early September, and we are really drying the ground out, but still a ways from any drought returning.”
