Sunny but Windy
The big story today will be the wind. The winds will be very gusty, especially this afternoon. Westerly winds of 20-25 mph will be expected with gusts over 30 mph. Yet again, Red Flag Warnings are flying for the entire area with the gusty winds and low humidity values(below 30%) and thus the fire danger will be elevated. Any fires could quickly spread if uncontrolled.
A large vortex, i.e. upper level low, is situated over Southeastern Canada and will remain in place for the next several days. This will bring a reinforcing shot of some colder air starting tomorrow. Temperatures will be in the 50's for the next few days. A shortwave embedded within the large upper low will drive through the area tonight and tomorrow. This will bring the threat of a few rain showers. If you can stand the wind, enjoy today, because the next few days will have a chill in the air.
