Fall Around the Corner

Many of us have patiently waited for Fall temperatures to descend from the north, especially since we officially entered the Fall season last Thursday on the Equinox. Well here it comes and it appears it’ll stick around for a while at that. Last Monday it was 100°. Seven days later it’ll be in the 70’s:

It get to some cooler temperatures we first have to get through some rain. Today the rain will be scattered about by afternoon, some of these storms could produce ample lightning and brief heavy rain. Coverage is expected to peak around 30%. It’ll be very humid  with a high reaching into the low 90’s. Sunday is cooler and more wet:

The rain chances really pick up overnight starting in our western counties. This is were the risk of flash flooding is the highest tomorrow. As the front approaches from the west the rain chances start to pick up by afternoon on Sunday:

We make that seasonal shift to fall temperatures once the rain clears Monday night. Highs will only reach into the 70’s on Monday and stay in the mid-80’s after that. It looks like next weekend will be dry and seasonable:
