Near Record Warmth... Coming To An End
It's been an unusually warm and muggy start to the month of September. The average high temperature for the first six days of the month is 77° (this takes in to account each days low temp). That goes into the record books as the second warmest start to September... the record was set in 1922 at 77.7° The image below shows the high temperature for each day of the month so far. Keep in mind, our normal high temperature is 75°.
If the heat has been a bit too much for you, relief is in sight. Today's thunderstorms are triggered in part by a cool front that will sweep across the area by late this evening. Our winds will shift from the southwest to the northwest and cooler, less humid air will funnel in across the state. By Friday and Saturday, our high temps will be cooler (in the 60's) than our low temps have been all month long!
