The Headline

Howdy everyone! I hope we’re all doing well this morning. The headline over the past few days has been unequivocally the summer-like heat. It has been pretty dang terrible.

This was me anytime I had to walk to class last week.

That is all looking to change, as a nice cool down is on the horizon. Look up in the northern US, there lies a nice autumn airmass!

40s, 50s and 60s lie just beyond that cold front!
h/t COD Weather

That is heading towards us over the next few days. The front will be quite slow moving, but it appears as if it should be largely passed through the region by tomorrow evening.


This will occur as a pretty deep trough progresses eastward and moves the ridge that has plagued us with summer-like temperatures to our south.

*That feeling when the ridge is finally leaving*

Before this happens, though, we are still looking at highs rocking into the mid and upper 80s today and tomorrow. I can barely bear this heat any longer, but knowing it’ll be gone after tomorrow is comforting.


This will be quite the weak cold front by the time it reaches us, so only isolated to widely scattered showers/storms are expected. Partly sunny skies should clear out Wednesday night, as well. Thursday looks wonderful. Sunny, and cool temps. Highs are expected to remain in the mid 70s.

This is legitimately how excited I am about this cool down. h/t
