Warm, muggy weather and some storms ahead for the weekend

After a brief respite from summer-like heat and humidity this week, we’re looking at some changes as we approach the final weekend in July.

After a blustery, raw start to the week, things have momentarily brightened up and gotten much more pleasant for us thanks to an area of high pressure. This at least gives us a break from clouds and showers for a day in what is shaping up to be a long-term “active” weather pattern, one that […]

Just when it seems like perhaps we’ve turned the corner and now the worst of winter might be behind us, we find ourselves looking up at yet another blast of Arctic air for our weekend. While temperatures for Friday seems relatively close to what we would call “typical” or “seasonable” for this time of the year, […]

Our weather this week has gotten progressively warmer and warmer and seemingly more September-like as the 50 and 60 degree high temperatures we experienced a week or so ago have given way to the more seasonable lower 70s.

A stormy, humid weekend may be ahead of us

After a relatively quiet work week, it looks like our weekend is looking a bit stormy and possibly rather soggy.
