Saturday was mostly sunny, warm and dry once again. Temperatures rose into the mid 80s with lows in the low 60s. Dew points started out lower (mid 50s) but later rose into the upper-mid 60s. Now at 0815 we have sunny skies with temperatures in the mid 60s and the dew points lower once again in the upper 50s. The Saturday minimum temperature from the VP2 in the shelter on the ground below my balcony (61.6°) was recorded at 0646 while the maximum temperature (83.9°) was recorded at 1529. Dew point temps ranged from 57° up to 67°. Relative humidity values were lower than yesterday (94% – 41%). Barometric values were a bit higher than yesterday, ranging from 30.11″ at 0956 down to 30.02″ at 0014. Here is a picture of my state and US flogs out in front of my balcony window at 1900 EDT – totally no wind at the time.

We now have sunny skies with temperatures in the mid 60s at 0815 Sunday. Sunny skies will dominate our weather Sunday and Monday with very warm and dry conditions continuing. High temps should be in the upper 80s with lows in the mid 60s. On Tuesday and Wednesday a bit cooler with partly cloudy skies, highs in the low 80s and lows in the upper-mid 60s. Thursday should turn a bit cooler, with highs in the upper 70s and lows in the upper 50s. Cooler air should be gradually working its way in by the end of the week and into the weekend as we transition from September into October.
