Wow. Year after year, decade after decade, some of the best weather of the year occurs during September and October in our area. Granted that is my opinion but it is hard to argue that sunny mild days and clear cool nights are unpleasant. Yes, we are dry with rainfall about and inch and a half below normal for September. But we are actually right on average for total rainfall since January first.

High pressure will continue to dominate for the foreseeable future. In fact, model guidance suggests we could have another 7 consecutive days of partly to mostly sunny weather. Enjoy...because it is only a matter of time before the pattern flips and we see day after day and cloudy and damp weather.
