As we head towards the finish line for the unofficial end of summer this weekend, we’re not seeing much beneficial rain for the week (only a few showers in the region on Wednesday morning), but we still have a few warm days ahead of us including Tuesday.
We’ll start with some clouds and patchy fog but this will burn down to partly sunny skies and this partial sunshine will send temperatures into the upper 80’s and even some low 90’s by the afternoon:
good for the beaches too!
Well, for those of you willing enough to turn the page about 90 degree heat, I will say this… a 90 degree day in late August is not the same as a 90 degree day in late June . It depends on the position of the sun…
Check this out…last week when it was hot I used an app called sunseeker. The app is used in conjunction with your camera and you point the sun to the sky and it shows you the path of the sun on that day as well as on June 21st, September 22nd and December 21st…
Notice how much lower the yellow line is compared to the red line (don’t even think about the blue line!). The sun is now lower in the sky than it was on June 21st, and lower in the sky means the sun’s energy is less intense than it was 8 weeks ago! I’m not saying 90 is the new 70 for you, but you should be able to feel the difference… either that or maybe it’s just a Jedi thing…
In any case, the hot/humid air will not last all week. We’ll be tracking a cool front over the region Wednesday morning, but since the front is scheduled to move through the area in the morning hours, the atmosphere won’t be fully energized, so I think it’s more likely to be showers than thunderstorms are. As of tonight, the shower window is open from 6am to 10am on Wednesdays, with plenty of sunshine until the afternoon. Then we get a great early fall weather bubble for Thursday and Friday!
