An Early Fall Pattern…And Perhaps A Hurricane?

After a fall-like weekend with cooler temperatures and widespread rain, the workweek will start off on a pleasant note. The jet stream continues a northwest to southeast movement and that is acting to filter in some cooler temps.

The weather will remain rather quiet for the first half of the week with a slow warming trend that will take temps back into the upper80’s and low 90’s.

There will be a few systems waiting on deck for the area coming up late in the week into the weekend. The best chance of rain will come over the weekend. The weather pattern is starting to turn away form the oppressive heat pattern back to a pattern that favors temps near average and at least regular rain chances.

Also, something to keep and eye on is lurking out in the Atlantic. Invest 94 should continue to develop over the next several days and could threaten some parts of the US coast (where that will be remains to be seen.)

This is a look at the model tracks for Invest 94.

As far as the intensity of the tropical system, the computer models are all over the place with some wanting to develop a category 2/3 hurricane while others want to maintain a lower strength.

This tropical system is still in the early stages of development and computer models often have a difficult time mapping out where these systems will track. It will be something to keep and eye on over the next week or so.
