There will finally be a regime change as far as the weather pattern is concerned, not only will we see a break from the afternoon storms later this week, but we will not be nearly as hot. The mercury in the thermometer will still be in the middle 80s, but not the 90s and we will be less humid, making it feel more comfortable.
Storms are still on the docket for Tuesday, in fact a robust line of storms will move through late in the afternoon or early evening. The storms are associated with a cold front that will finish crossing the Commonwealth by Wednesday morning. Behind the front will be dry air and clear skies.
Once the rain ends Tuesday evening, we can look forward to a dry and quiet pattern with temperatures near or below normal
Wednesday is the last day of the meteorological summer and should be on the quiet side. Look for highs in the middle 80s and plenty of sunshine. More of the same as we start out the new month and the new season, autumn.
September is typically one of the more active periods in the Tropical Atlantic and there may be a new storm developed by then in the Atlantic. In fact, the NHC is monitoring several potential issues this week.
