Fall officially begins at 8:54 this evening but a warm first weekend of Autumn is certainly well underway! High pressure is still anchored over The Carolinas blocking a frontal boundary to the north and west from moving across the region through the end of the weekend. Southerly winds will continue to bring in more moisture but rain chances will be limited to areas to the north and west, closer to the front but, yes, there could be some isolated rain areas in other parts of the region but generally just expect mostly sunny, hot conditions area wide through the end of the weekend. Afternoon temperatures will generally range from 90-92 with overnight lows near 70. Conditions will begin to change by Monday as Tuesday through Friday time frame. Rain remains likely through the end of the work week but a blocking ridge of high pressure will likely prevent any frontal passage which could bring the much anticipated cool-down by next weekend. In fact, now cooler air might not arrive until the first week of October. So, the Long-Hot-Summer continues.
