We have a much cooler and less-humid airmass in place! Our dew points were in the 60s and 70s earlier this week–true “air you can wear”! But now they’re in the 50s, which feels nice and refreshing. You can see the cooler air moving in, too, on the northwest winds:
It may feel a little like fall to you today, as we only climb into the lower 70s for highs this afternoon. We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds, and a lot of dry weather. But the clouds will thicken in spots from late morning into the early afternoon as an upper level disturbance moves through. This feature may kick off a few spotty light showers. But don’t worry, after 3 or 4pm we should return to dry weather. It still looks great for area fireworks tonight… and again Friday evening:
Remember John and I will be co-emcees for the Kettering fireworks tonight. We will be introducing some great entertainment– Blood, Sweat & Tears, Bo Bice and Neil Sedaka will be there! This all starts at 6pm, with the fireworks just before 10pm. I hope to see you there!
While we have two cooler days today and Friday… things warm up a bit over the weekend. It looks like it will be a lovely weekend at the pool or one of our area lakes!
In the tropics, we officially have the first hurricane of the Atlantic season! Arthur’s winds strengthened to 75mh early this morning, making it a category 1 storm. It is expected to move to the northeast, skimming the Outer Banks late Saturday night/early Friday morning:
Because I will be out late at the fireworks tonight, Tara Hastings is covering for me Friday morning. I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July, and holiday weekend!
