Blog: Great Weekend Ahead!

Regional Weather Map

Well it’s going to be a great weekend!  Thanks for reading the blog today…………………………………………………………………………………………..

……………………..

Ok, just kidding.  I’ll do a quick blog.  We still have a large area of high pressure in the region. This has given us a lot of sunshine lately.

Regional Weather Map

It will continue to give us sunshine over the weekend.  Highs temps will be in the mid-upper 70s today through Sunday.  We’ll probably even have a few 80s inland.  The average high is 69 degrees, but 70s are common this time of year.  The humidity should stay down through Sunday.  However, the humidity and temps will be up Monday and Tuesday.  Highs will be in the upper 70s to near 80.  By Tuesday a big cold front will move into the region. This will bring in some scattered showers and thunderstorms.  Then we’ll cool down Wednesday to the 60s for highs.  By Thursday a brief shot of colder air will be in the region. High temperatures will only be in the upper 50s to low 60s.  Lows will be in the 40s and maybe 30s again. Then we’ll already warm up by the following weekend, but stay tuned for updates to the finer details.

One cool thing that is happening this weekend is the Orionid meteor shower.  We aren’t expecting a lot of shooting stars, but it should be dark as the moon will not be out for most of the night.

Meteor Shower

Expect about 15-25 per hour.  The best time is after midnight, but you could catch some about any time of the night.  These are actually particles from Halley’s Comet.  It could get a little chilly inland overnight, but otherwise most temps will be mild.

Have a good weekend!
