A record of a dayJuly 28th, 2013 at 6:40 pm by Tara Hastings under Weather
Well this day is going to go in the weather history books. Honest question – how many of you turned the heat on in the car this morning? It was a tad chilly and a shock to the system especially in late July!
This morning and afternoon we broke two records. The first – a new record low temperature this morning. The second a record “low” maximum temperature. Basically the coolest high we’ve see on that date.
The reason for the chill in the air is our jet stream or storm track pattern. There’s a dip in the jet stream which means cooler air is taking over the area.
Temperatures are still going to be below normal for Monday but we’ll be a little warmer than Sunday as our jet stream begins to take a more west to east flow.
Clouds begin to break up later tonight. We’ll see a sunny start Monday but it will still be on the cool side but dry.
Our next storm system heads this way for Tuesday. It will bring us a chance of showers after 5pm on Tuesday. There’s also a good chance of rain on Wednesday.
Have a great week!
