Enjoy today, heat builds back…starting tomorrowJune 26th, 2012 at 7:57 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
What a refreshing morning! Temperatures have been 15 to 25 degrees cooler this morning than this same time yesterday… see how everyone has dropped in this airmass:
Here’s a look at 7am temps, and how low we were:
After this cool start, it will turn into a pleasantly warm afternoon. Today will actually be the last really comfortable day this week! Look for sunshine and highs in the upper 70s to right around 80. Tonight will be clear, calm and cool, as high pressure drifts right over us. Then, the high moves east of us on Wednesday, and that will allow a southerly flow to set up… AND help to usher in a warmer airmass:
Mid-80s will be the rule Wednesday afternoon, so it will definitely feel warmer. Then we get out of control Thursday and Friday, with highs climbing well into the 90s!
Friday could very well make it into the upper 90s once again, but it will be dependent on cloud cover and/or any showers in the area. We’ll keep you posted. Right now the rain chance isn’t looking very promising, but it is at least showing up… so some of you may see something brief. Unfortunately, what we need is a good long soaking rain… something that’s not showing up even as we head into next week. We will also remain hot into next week, with highs in the lower 90s from Saturday and beyond.
So get your yard work… your workouts even… done early this week! If you need to get out towards the end of the week, the early mornings will be your best bet, but it will still feel quite humid at that time. I am not looking forward to putting in my long run over the weekend, and am considering going at like 5am. I continue to train for the Air Force Half Marathon, which is in September. My whole life, I’ve been a 3-to-4 mile runner… so doing this long distance is a huge deal for me. So far, I am up to 8.5 miles… the longest I’ve ever run! Ever! It felt good to get the distance in over the weekend. I typically take one or both kids with me on the short runs, but the long runs I do solo. It is amazing the ground I covered! I usually feel pretty good until mile 6 or so… that’s when I really start to feel it. I also have a pseudo knee injury… dull knee pain that comes and goes irregularly. I sort of think it may be related to arthritis. It doesn’t happen every time I run, but sometimes it’s there the whole time. During the most recent 8.5, I did not feel it all all! BUT the next day I was BEAT. And my son was battling a cold… which, in my worn-down state, I then picked up. Now with some pretty great running weather today, I likely won’t be able to go…boo!! Frustrating when you’ve got to keep on track!!
