Forecasters predict ‘a great week to be on vacation’
Pleasant summer weather will continue this week, with partly sunny skies and increasing but still bearable humidity levels. Today should be dry as temperatures climb to around 87 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.
“It’s a great week to be on vacation,” said Alan Dunham, weather service meteorologist. “We have high pressure cresting overhead today that will dominate our weather for much of the week.”
Skies will remain mostly clear overnight as a light wind blows.
Tuesday will see slightly higher temperatures than Monday, around 89 degrees. Otherwise, the weather will be the same. Skies will be partly sunny and the humidity won’t be excessive, according to the weather service.
Wednesday won’t bring much change, either, except for temperatures will inch up slightly.
The warmest day of the week is expected to be Thursday. Temperatures could peak at 92 degrees. The weather will continue to be mostly dry, though a slow-moving cold front could shake things up late in the day, bringing a slight chance of precipitation, forecasters said.
“Dew points will be in the mid- to upper 70s on Thursday,” Dunham said. “They wont be bad as back in July, but things will get sticky. “
Any rain should dissipate by early Friday, bringing another dry day with mostly sunny skies.
This weekend, rain is unlikely and temperatures should hover around 80 degrees on Saturday and Sunday, according to the weather service.
Humidity levels will drop to a comfortable level, the weather service said.Jasper can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @Jasper_Craven
