ANOTHER FALL-LIKE DAY

Summer’s vacation continues. A temperature of 71° at 3 p.m. Thursday is the normal high for Oct. 1 and is 13 degrees below normal.  Since June 1, there have been actually an equal number of days above vs. days below.  To date, summer 2013 has produced 35 days below normal, 34 days above normal and seven days at normal.  The lack of 90° heat and the recent spell of cool weather has made this summer feel like it never has really taken off.

A SUMMER RALLY COMING

Summer to stage a comeback in the days ahead. Seventy-four percent of the days have been below normal since our last 90° day (7/23).  A huge pattern change in North America will send a surge of warmth and humidity east next week.  Area temperatures could reach the 90° mark for the first time in more than three weeks.
