WEATHER NEWS: PM Update: Seasonably cool tonight, and beautiful Wednesday

Temperatures made it to near or above 80 this afternoon as west-northwest winds whisked away humidity. Dew points — a measure of humidity in the air — were about 20 degrees lower than Monday’s muggy stuff. Certainly noticeable! This weather perfection is set to continue into tomorrow. Tonight, lots of spots should dip below 60.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): Pretty much wall-to-wall sunshine. It’s a cool start, but high temperatures are right around 80. With low humidity, it’ll feel quite delightful. Winds are from the north-northwest around 5 to 10 mph.

Never-ending summer? Odds seem to be growing for a late-season heat wave next week. Temperatures could approach 90 in the area as soon as this weekend, with perhaps several days of near or above 90 possible into the workweek. The National Blend of Models forecast below is toasty, but it’s on the cool side compared with some modeling that pushes the area to the mid-90s or so in the middle of next week. Our average final 90-degree day in the city is Sept. 12.
