Just to fill you in....our normals for this time of year are 84/61. Obviously, we've been below that lately, which is not necessarily a bad thing. And Saturday is the first day of Fall. It's still hard to believe that Summer is all but wrapped up now.
As far as active weather goes. Not too much here lately. Normally these blogs are full of all kinds of action like major cold fronts and severe storms but this is going to be a very inactive period for us.
If this was our defense readiness condition, we would be at DEFON 5 right now. That is unless Matthew Broderick decided to play games and book a ticket to Paris for two on a WOPR government supercomputer named JOSHUA. You do remember the movie War Games?
In fact, our one chance of rain comes with little fanfare on Saturday. With a not-so saturated atmosphere and little instability, only a few showers may form across the area. It could very well be the that the same number of people who actually watched the Chevy Chase Show will be affected by rain on Saturday. Saturday itself will last much longer than his show.
So if you're into sunshine and below normal temperatures in the 70s, then the rest of this week will be right up your Alley. And if you need the rain, don't hold your breath!
