This weekend and next week may set a trend which we haven’t seen in quite a while, above average temperatures. The new 8 to 14-day outlook issued by the Weather Prediction Center features a better than 50% chance of higher than average temperatures from September 19-25. This follows a rather cool start to the month.
This above average trend will actually begin Friday with highs in the upper 70s to around 80 degrees and continue through the weekend with highs soaring into the lower to even middle 80s by Sunday. Temperatures will again be above average by the middle of next week in our ten-day forecast.
There is a 40% chance that precipitation will also be slightly above average for the same period.
