I hope everyone had a great day today. It nice and seasonably warm, feeling like May with temperatures in the 80s. However, we have not had any measurable rainfall in the past 25 days. This means we haven’t received more than 0.01 inches of rainfall.
Our area is currently experiencing a drought, with the Western Zone suffering from an exceptional drought. Our M live radar is dry and we aren’t expecting much rain in the south due to the high pressure system keeping it away.
The high pressure system is causing a clockwise wind pattern, bringing warm temperatures in the 80s. This will continue into Tuesday, which will also be unseasonably warm.
We will continue to have dry conditions for the rest of the week, but on Thursday, a cold front will move into the area. It’s expected to stall out south of us, but it will bring a north wind and cooler temperatures by the end of the week and into the weekend.
This system also brings a chance of much-needed rainfall. On Thursday evening, we could see some isolated showers ahead of the cold front, but once it moves in, we can expect a good chance of rain.
Friday morning and throughout the day, we could have scattered showers. The estimated rainfall for Friday night ranges from half an inch to possibly up to an inch. This rainfall is welcomed and needed.
Currently, temperatures are in the 50s, feeling pleasant. Tonight, lows will be near 50 with slightly cooler temperatures in some areas.
Election day on Tuesday will have great weather, with no excuses to not go out and vote. It will be quiet and cool in the morning, with temperatures above average in the 80s for the rest of the day. Tropics are quiet and hurricane season officially ends on November 30th.
In the 10-day forecast, we can expect superb weather on election day, with unseasonably warm temperatures till Thursday. There is a pretty good chance of rain on Friday. There may be lingering showers throughout the holiday weekend, including Veterans Day on Saturday..
