Tracking some big changes down the road

Good Saturday and welcome to the weekend. Scattered storms are kicking off the weekend weather, but I’m watching some bigger changes coming for next week.  It’s a setup that will bring another big blast of fall temps into town.

In the short term, we have highs in the low 80s with a scattering of showers and storms about the region. Here are your radars to track the action:

Sunday’s weather looks mainly dry, with highs in the 80s. Can we keep the skies clear for our big solar eclipse day on Monday? The models continue to show a few clouds across the region:

 

Hopefully, the clouds are few and far between. Highs will be in the mid- and upper 80s, but the numbers will drop by more than 10 degrees as the eclipse is underway.

Showers and storms increase Tuesday and Wednesday as a strong cold front drops in from the northwest:

The air coming in behind this looks a lot like the stuff we had for the first half of August. We might string together several days with highs in the 70s.

The GFS ensembles keep the cooler-than-normal pattern going through Labor Day weekend:

Make it a great day and take care.
