Was it late July or late September today? Low humidity and below normal high temperatures were the story as everyone enjoyed the breeze and lack of afternoon cloud cover spurred on by the decrease in moisture in the air. Athens dipped down to 67°F last night and will only get cooler this evening as northeasterly winds persist. How is tomorrow shaping up? And when should we expect the humidity to rise to our late summertime normals? Details are below.
Tonight: Clear skies with breezy northeast winds. Low near 63°F.
Monday: Sunny skies with continued breezy northeast winds. High near 87°F.
Tonight we’ll enjoy quiet weather as high pressure and low humidity afford us cloudless skies and warm, sticky air. If you enjoy opening your windows at night for a nice and cool breeze, tonight would be the prime (and rare for this time of year) candidate. Overnight lows dip down into the low to mid 60s.
Things will be just as they were today for tomorrow. Temperatures will only climb into the mid to upper 80s, which is a couple of degrees cooler for this time of year. A nice northeasterly wind will bring a refreshing blast of cool air, too. Maybe take an afternoon stroll if you can!
Sneak Peek of the Week:
The drier and cooler air hangs around for the first half of this week. Temperatures return to their norm starting Wednesday afternoon when highs assume their normal, low 90s mark. Humidity values hold off until the end of the week, though. Which is good news if you aren’t a fan of the afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Overall, the majority of the week looks dry, but we could see some rain Friday morning as an upper level disturbance pushes into the region.
Tuesday: Wake up temperatures in the low to mid 60s. Sunny skies with a few clouds and highs in the upper 80s.
Wednesday: Wake up temperatures in the mid to upper 60s. Sunny skies with a few clouds. High temperatures in the upper 80s.
Thursday: Wake up temperatures in the mid to upper 60s. Sunny skies with a few clouds with highs in the upper 80s/around 90°F.
Friday: Wake up temperatures in the upper 60s. Morning/afternoon showers likely. Highs in the mid 80s.
