One more hot day, then some rain and BIG temperature changes…

August 8th, 2012 at 7:32 am by under Weather

Temperatures are a bit higher this morning, and that trend will continue across the board today.  We should make it up near 90-degrees.  Humidity will also be on the rise, and with the increase in moisture and a cold front dropping in… we’ll become partly sunny this afternoon.  Not quite the crystal clear blue sky we have seen the past two days!  We could even see an isolated shower or thunderstorm, as Futuretrac shows:

A better chance of rain will be Thursday afternoon through Friday morning, as an area of low pressure moves across the region.  There could be a decent soaking for many spots with this system, but the threat of severe weather is also there.  Our area is still included in an Elevated risk for strong storms:

Damaging winds and hail will be the main threats, and we will continue to watch this.  The best chance of severe weather will be Thursday afternoon and evening.

Behind this storm system MUCH cooler air will move in for Friday and the weekend.  After a little morning rain on Friday, we’ll dry out for the afternoon and it will feel like Fall!  Temps will be running about 10-degrees below normal here both Friday & Saturday:

This is fabulous news for the Germanfest Picnic going on this weekend at Carollon Park!  I have emceed the fashion show for the past five years or so… and it is usually HOT!!  Especially for all the people wearing the traditional Bavarian clothing.  But this year will be so nice… I cannot wait!  There is a slight chance of a lingering light shower on Saturday, and we’ll still see lots of clouds… but highs in the 70s can’t be beat!  Jim Bucher kicks off the fun on Friday, and I will be there for the fashion show Saturday afternoon.  The party continues on Sunday… and the weather will still be great!

So I took yesterday off from running because of my cartwheel-induced back injury :)   Bonus, though, I got some housework done!  I may sit out again today, but hope to get at least one more run in this week before an attempt at another longer run over the weekend.  I just hope I have time this weekend–we have a LOT going on!!

Have a good one!

    According to NWS, the storm system that arrives tomorrow afternoon/evening is forecast to be a cut-off low that may be exclusive through Saturday. Be prepared not only to tell viewers the “Cut-off low, weatherman’s woe” routine, but don’t be surprised to see record low maximum temperatures set on Friday and maybe Saturday.
