Another Cold Blast To End September

Do you like how it’s been feeling outside lately? Well if you do, the good news is that there will be more of the same coming later this month. It will start to get more humid as this week progresses, and temperatures will moderate back to normal by Friday. However, as the remnants of Tropical Storm or Hurricane Beta exit stage right, cooler and drier air will wrap in behind once again. This will leave most of us feeling some 10 to 15 degrees below seasonal average.

Below is just one run of the Euro model, but it shows a very chilly airmass set to arrive around the 29th. By the 30th, this air will have reached most of the Carolinas. This will leave the air smelling like wood fires, as many may start to use their outdoor firepits if they haven’t already.

By the 30th, much of the Carolinas will feel like 10 to 15° below normal. It seems as though pools and any other outdoor amenities may close early this year due to the early chill. Below is the Euro temperature departure from normal for the 30th:

We will have more on this upcoming cold shot at the end of the month, but on a positive note, it may keep the a/c bills down for some! That is, if the outbreak is not intense enough to cause the need to turn on heat.
