We’re much cooler today than we were the previous few days! Drier air continues to work it’s way in from the east behind yesterday’s backdoor cold front, making feels-like temperatures a little more bearable. Highs will top out in the upper 80s this afternoon with a few stray showers along and west of the Mississippi River as Imelda’s remnants move north.

This is nice. I like this.

Temperatures creep back into the low 90s into the weekend, but mostly dry conditions are expected to stick around thanks to high pressure remaining in control over the area. These above-average & mainly dry conditions will persist through the start of fall next week, but that could change. We’ll be keeping a close eye on a cold front to our north that may sink far enough south to spark scattered showers and storms. Stay tuned for updates!
