A dry front passed through during the night. It's around 72 degrees this morning and the humidity is considerably lower than it has been. By the end of the day, the afternoon sun, and low humidity, will lead to a low relative humidity, which will allow the temperatures to fall into the sixties tonight.
The long range forecast through the middle of next week is no rain, daytime temperaturs in the mid 90's and morning lows in the low 70's. Otherwise, the drought continues, things will become drier and the threat of wildfires will still be present.
I've noticed even trees are dying, which is unusual for this part of the country. Eventually, the weather pattern will change and rain will increase but that's not forecast until the summer of 2012. Until then, the drought will continue.
In Case You've Wondered
My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.
If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com
One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.
