Last Call for Summer?
Thursday afternoon gave you a taste of what's coming. It's a return to summer-like temperatures. Not that hot flatlander's summer, but the awesome pleasant summer temperatures in a mountain summer. Other than a barely worth mentioning potential for a stray light afternoon shower, dry weather rules for the next seven days. Expect a touch of valley fog early morning through Sunday, then lots of sun, pleasant daytime temperatures, and cool nights.

The cool, damp wedge eroded nicely Thursday. We will now enjoy high pressure across the Eastern U. S. A little wind shift (that might be called a front) from the north slides late Saturday, cooling temperatures almost imperceptibly.
A weak upper-level disturbance passes to our north today. Out of an abundance of caution, we mentioned potential for a stray light brief afternoon shower today. Other than that (and probably NOT that), warm, pleasant daytimes keep on coming for seven days. Nights will be cool (because the are longer in fall) witha touch of valley fog each morning through Sunday.
But our first real Fall cooldown is in sight... A front arriving next Saturday brings much cooler air next Sunday. Generally cool weather follows with frost in play.
Tropical Storms Philippe and Rina are harmlessly drifting NE in the central Atlantic. Not a threat to any land mass.
