It's back to school... and back to work...

After a gorgeous September preview kind of a weekend, we'll dabble a little bit in August this week. A few storm systems come through, with another cool-down for the coming weekend...

It's back to Monday everyone!

Getting all those kids ready for school for the first time this year? (I know just about everyone is doing that now)... How about some music for the day:

...At least the weather will cooperate this time around. High pressure continues to hang around for one more day, this time the temperatures will creep back up to where they typically are for mid-august (mid 80s).

Our first weather system comes in on Tuesday. So far, the models have been souring on this one, but it's still our first look at rain after a few days. Here's the NAM and GFS:

NAM - Tuesday Afternoon GFS - Tuesday Afternoon

The storm system is actually a little better looking earlier (for example today in the mid-west), and losing a little steam when it comes our way.

We'll get a break for a bit after that one, and then we'll await our next system on Friday. This one is stronger than the storm system arriving tomorrow-- but the models almost always resolve future systems toward the stronger end. Here's the GFS model on this one:

On the left-hand map we can see the inter-twining of dry air and humid air at cloud-level. The other thing that's noticeable is that the center of the storm is moving well up into Canada. It will be able to dig down some nice Septembery air to cool things down in time for the weekend.

20+ degrees below normal..? I doubt it...but it does raise some eyebrows!
