Lots of sunshine in store for mid-September (9/11/22)
Following the passage of the cold front, a dry airmass now hangs in our midst. Dew point temperatures have dropped off into the lower 60s as of Sunday afternoon and will continue to decrease into the early hours of Monday. These changes are setting up for a more consistent warming pattern for the next several days.
The Skeeter Meter will remain in the “Low” category for both Monday and Tuesday due to cooler temperatures, clear skies, and lower dew points. As for Wednesday, both the temperature and dew point temperature will slowly rise again. With calm winds, the chance to see mosquitos – despite the lack of precipitation – will be slightly better by midweek.
Winds will continue to be breezy at times throughout the day on Monday. Many cities within the FOX 23 coverage area will see high temperatures in the low 80s with northwesterly winds blowing up to 25 miles per hour. As with high pressure systems building in from the west often do, we can expect clear conditions similar to what we see on Monday for the next several days.
The warming pattern that we will experience by mid-September is consistent. The chance to see mostly clear skies during the day as well as at night will allow high temperatures to climb slowly each day going forward. The next storm chance could be seen a week from now, but models right now keep a dry forecast through the first half of next weekend.
