Summer Continues

2014-09-05 07:37:40.000 – Mike Carmon,  Weather Observer/Education Specialist


It may officially be meteorological fall now, but summer has continued to hang on with a loose grip.

Our high temperatures on the summit upon the turn of the calendar into September have all been above average:

September 1: 58
September 2: 60
September 3: 54
September 4: 55

Today, September 5, is forecasted by the computer models to be the warmest day yet in this young September, with highs possibly reaching above the 60-degree mark under partial sunshine.

The ship will inevitably right itself, however. A cold front approaching the region tomorrow will knock temperatures back down to what we’d consider ‘average’ for this time of year by Sunday, and will remain in that general range through early next week. These changes will not come without a price, though, as the cold front looks to drop plenty of rain across the summits tomorrow, on the order of 3/4 of an inch to possibly an inch.

In addition, thunderstorms and gusty winds are likely tomorrow afternoon and evening, with gusts in excess of 60 mph likely with the frontal passage tomorrow evening!
