Summer temperatures making a comeback

Many of us threw on our jackets yesterday morning before heading to campus as a high pressure system brought cooler weather to the area. Last night, that high pressure moved offshore, allowing a warm front to work into the region today.

Unseasonably warm and humid air will follow this warm front, giving us one last taste of summer through midweek — look out for high temperatures in the low 90s°F tomorrow!

At the end of the week, a strong cold front will approach, bringing with it the possibility of thunderstorms and cooling us down again to daily highs around 70°F.

In other news, it is possible that the Atlantic may see its first hurricane of the season by midweek. Yesterday evening, Tropical Storm Humberto was situated south of the Cape Verde Islands, with maximum sustained winds around 45 mph. The National Hurricane Center expects Humberto to strengthen, possibly becoming the first hurricane of the season by Wednesday. Regardless, Humberto is expected to turn north and pose no threat to the U.S.
