We have gone from hazy, hot and humid with a record-setting April to clear, comfortable and calm. We have earned this after setting 4 record highs this month. It looks like this refreshing weather will hang on for at least one more day before the humidity comes back up which will increase our rain chances. We need to enjoy this before our humid season kicks in by the middle of May which is just a few short weeks away. Tonight look for great sleeping weather and ideal radiational cooling conditions. Lows will drop into the upper 40s in southeast Georgia to the lower 50s at the airport. The beaches will be in the middle to upper 50s. Enjoy the bright moonlight tonight which is now 61% illuminated and with the great visibility thanks to high pressure you can check out Saturn and Titan its largest moon!
There is a parade of storms across the country but the main storm track remains well north of our area. As a result, even though there are rain chances on Friday and Saturday it does not look like a huge deal at this point with rain amounts likely staying under .10" in most areas while being scattered in nature. So that is what we like calling a spritzle of rain in the forecast.
I will be back this evening to take a look at just how unusual April has been and what it means for our summer!! Will we see 99 days of 90 or above again? Brb but first I will see you on-air this evening!
