Gorgeous Weather...

>> Friday, July 07, 2006

Cooler and drier air is taking hold over our region. That cooler and drier air will make for a beautiful day today and tomorrow.

By the way, it is a rather chilly start up in the mountains this morning with Boone and Grandfather Mountain down in the 40s!

Look for low to mid 80s today, and with dewpoints in the 50s, and maybe even 40s at times, it will be extremely pleasant out there.

I mentioned here in this space early Wednesday morning that I thought Charlotte might challenge the record low of 58 Saturday morning. Well, I am now forecasting a low of 58 tonight, so I think Charlotte has a good shot at typing or even breaking the record low for tomorrow.

Tomorrow looks great with lots of sun, mid 80s for highs, and continued low humidity values.

Trouble from the tropics???
It is really quite amazing that most computer models continue to indicate a low pressure forming somewhere off of the southeast coast this weekend. I only say it is amazing because so far, there are no real signs of that occurring.

Our own in-house computer model develops a low pressure east of Jacksonville early tomorrow morning, then moves that low inland near Wilmington and keeps it spinning over eastern North Carolina through Sunday. If that solution verifies, wholesale changes would have to be made to our Sunday forecast around here. If that solution occurs, we would be looking at rain chances and lots of clouds Sunday. The NAM is also indicating rain chances here Sunday. Here is the surface map valid 8pm Sunday from the 6z run of the NAM today...

However, at the moment, I am just mentioning partly cloudy skies and dry weather continuing Sunday. But, this forecast might have to be amended as we go through time and see whether or not that low pressure will develop.

Elsewhere, the tropics are very quiet.

Later next work week, we get back to more typical summertime stuff around here. Look for muggy conditions to return with the chance for mainly afternoon showers and storms Tuesday through Friday.

Can you explain "Dew Point" in laymans terms?
