Justin’s Monday Night Forecast Discussion:
What a great way to send off summer today? We saw plenty of sunny skies, low 80s and a nice breezy afternoon. If you don’t want summer to end, you’ll like this week’s forecast as we’ll keep some summer-like warmth heading into midweek.
Overnight tonight, expect clear skies and another nice, chilly start on Tuesday with lows falling into the mid 40s. In fact, that’ll be the case most of this week, so make sure the kids are bundled for the bus in the morning. Most of the week, with high pressure aloft, we’ll see sunny skies and by Wednesday and Thursday, highs will warm to the upper 80s!
Morning clouds will be back by Friday and the weekend. Saturday’s Duck (and finally) Beaver home games will be pleasant in the low 80s. Early next week, a decent looking storm will march across the state, possibly bringing our first rain chance in about a month. It’ll also knock the highs back well below average, into the low 70s.
