A SPRAWLING HIGH PRESSURE AREA WILL BRING US AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF DRY WEATHER… TEMPERATURES WILL MODERATE OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS

After a frosty morning, Saturday will turn out to be a very nice day with temperatures peaking at around 60 degrees. Southwesterly winds will slowly bring in milder temperatures. The weather pattern over the next few days is a dry one with high pressure dominating the weather. Temperatures are expected to slowly moderate as we head through next week. The calm, clear conditions last night caused temperatures to drop to frosty levels, especially in areas away from the water. Freeze Warnings were in effect for many inland areas. The nights are getting longer allowing for the temperatures to drop. When the sky is clear and the humidity is low, the heat radiates very efficiently into space. At night, cloud cover and higher humidity hold the heat in that we gained during the day preventing a rapid loss of heat. The next chance of significant rain probably won’t come until we get to later next week or the weekend, but the computer models do not agree on the timing of the next precipitation event.
