There really hasn't been much to blog about lately and I'm not complaining. We deserve some quiet and nice weather! Usually this is the time of year when we can go back and forth with our temperatures as the seasons fight it out. Cold air has been building at the higher latitudes and the jet stream is getting energized as it battles the remaining hot air of summer. Of course, the cooler air wins eventually, but it results in a temperature roller coaster of sorts. We will warm up to around 90 again next week, but it shouldn't last too long as yet another frontal boundary delivers another shot of pleasant fall air. I took a quick look at the long range GFS numbers and it indicates we'll be back into the 70s for highs by next Thursday
Let's talk about "Nate". On Thursday, there was some concern he would turn north and affect the southern United States. The picture became clearer last night and it appears the storm will make a turn to the west and affect Mexico. I know many in Texas were hoping from rain, but a tropical system can make you go from extreme drought to extreme flooding.
