Justin’s Tuesday Night Forecast Discussion:
Tropical Storm Isaac has formed in the Eastern Caribbean Sea. Details on track and intensity is here from the National Hurricane Center: ISAAC
Overall, we’re looking at a very quiet week of weather. High pressure building in will ensure we stay rain-free but its not very strong so there won’t be the same heatwave like the past few weeks. Additionally, the jet stream will hold a steady on-shore push all week. That will bring in the morning marine clouds at the coast and in the valley. All areas should be able to clear out nicely as we head into the afternoon hours.
That ocean air will also keep highs sitting in the upper 70s to near 80 for both Wednesday and Thursday. In fact, a nice push of cool Gulf of Alaska air will slide in Thursday and should keep highs to late September-like in the low to mid 70s! A few disturbances will move across the state but they shouldn’t be strong enough to bring more than some coastal drizzle at times.
By the weekend, we’ll see a bit of a jump back to near 80 Friday and Saturday but a stronger system on Sunday will increase the clouds and MAY bring a rain chance by Tuesday. Still some time to iron that out so we’ll wait and see.
Have a great Wednesday!
