WBOY STORMTRACKER 12 WEATHER SYNOPSIS:
Broad high pressure at the surface and a weak upper level ridge pattern keep the running theme going for the next several days. In case you missed it, that means mostly dry and warm days and tranquil, mostly clear nights. Those nighttime conditions will lead to areas of dense fog in the valleys and sheltered mountain hollows for the next few mornings. But that fog will clear away quickly, revealing mainly sunny sky conditions which in turn helps to boost daily high temperatures into the upper 70s and low 80s outside of the mountains.
Folks in the mountain counties will notice much cooler daytime weather but still seasonally mild nights. Your days will be cooler thanks in part to some lingering cloud cover and maybe even a few spotty rain showers from mid-afternoon into the early evening hours.
Any precipitation that might occur would not last long and will result in negligible rainfall for the area. While we're still running with roughly a ten-inch rainfall surplus on the year, the month of September has been about an inch or so below the normal for this area. And it looks like we'll keep a generally dry and warm late-summer theme through much of the coming work week with no major weather-makers on the horizon.
We expect the return of rain showers and a chance of thunderstorms on Wednesday.
Staying mostly dry, sunny and warm with foggy mornings throughout the rest of the week and the weekend.
