Summer Continues into October

For those hoping for some cooler temperatures into mid-month, it may not come as a surprise that more above-normal temperatures are expected. Humidity will also start to increase in the coming days as will the threat of showers. However, we are NOT expecting a widespread rain event that we were predicting on Sunday.

Instead, we are expected to remain warm and humid with scattered showers into mid-month. Below is the official CPC outlook from October 11th into the 15th.

Of course, this coincides with the GEFS ensemble mean, which has a “torch” for most of the eastern half of the country. So the bugs will stil be out, and there may be one or two more pool days left if it gets hot enough during the day.

Rain will be widely scattered, and does not looks to be as much now as first thought. This could be an issue for any locations experiencing a drought. Temperatures will be above normal, but we are not expecting highs in the upper 90s such as back in October of 2019.
