A cold front swept through the city earlier this morning, bringing with it much drier air and what promises to be several days of very boring weather. But when it comes to the weather boring is good, as we are in for several days of mostly sunny skies and comfortable temperatures. Today will be the warmest day of the coming week, with a high in the lower 80s.
The temperature will gradually get cooler as the week progresses and as the high pressure system responsible for the fair weather remains centered over the central part of the country. Thursday's high will be close to 80 and it looks like we'll only reach the mid 70s by Monday. Morning lows will be in the lower 60s in the city and into the 50s in more rural inland areas.
With little weather happening locally let's take a brief look at the tropics! The remnants of Tropical Storm Harvey are over the Gulf of Mexico this morning after passing over the Yucatan Peninsula earlier in the week. Those remnants are expected to regain strength and become zombie Tropical Storm, or even Hurricane, Harvey. Reanimated Harvey has the potential to drop crap tons of rain along the Texas and Louisiana coasts this weekend into early next week.
On the other side of the Gulf a disturbance will pass northward across Florida the next couple of days and potentially spin up into something more powerful once it reaches the Gulf Stream.
