A large area of high pressure across the middle of the country has brought us a sunny and cooler day. The wind from the N/NW has cooler and dry air making for a very comfortable day and night. Here is the early afternoon surface map showing the position of the high pressure.
There are two chances to see the Interational Space Station (ISS) this evening. Here is the information:
Time: 9:13 pm
Duration: 3 min
Location: NNW to NE
Time: 10:50 pm
Duration: 2 min
Location: N to NNE
The humidity level will be low Wednesday making for another comfortable day. A warm front is forecast to cross the state Thursday with a slight chance of showers/storms. The warm front will also bring an increase in temperatures and humidity for the end of the week. It will feel humid Friday through early next week with dewpoints going from the 40s today to the 60s and low 70s Friday through early next week. The chart below shows the forecast dewpoint temperatures.
The heat will build under a ridge of high pressure in the middle of the country this weekend into early next week. Under the high, it will be hot and humid with any chances of rain to be slim.
We need the rain and early indications are that there is a better chance of heavier rain to our northwest. Here is the rain forecast from this evening to Friday evening.
