Weather: Soggy & Cold for Sunday; Improving Conditions for Labor Day (9/2/17)

Torrance's Forecast Discussion

Torrance's Forecast: - Hello everyone! What a stellar start to the long holiday weekend, unfortunately we have a bit of a bump in the road for Sunday. As an area of high pressure departs from this evening clouds will start to filter in late this evening and into the overnight hours. While the majority of us will remain dry into the overnight hours a few spot showers may be felt as we go past midnight across southern Vermont. Overnight lows will fall to the upper 40s and low 50s across most of the region, clouds overnight will help to keep temperatures a bit warmer than what we saw last night. 

Sunday an area of low pressure will traverse across the eastern region of New York and central New England, that will produce gusty winds and rain. At times we may see moderate to heavy rain, since the origin of the storm is from Hurricane Harvey. Showers will be moving through at a fast pace. Temperatures will struggle to reach the low 60s, with majority of us seeing highs in the middle to upper 50s! Might be a better day going to see a movie, or watching movies on the couch. High pressure will return briefly for Labor Day on Monday, the day will feature a bit of clouds with sunshine and luckily warmer with highs in the middle 70s.

Tuesday through the rest of next week our weather is still very unsettled. Daily chances of rain are in the forecast, a weak cold front will approach the area on Tuesday sparking spotty showers, and while Wednesday will be mostly dry by the end of the day we see more rain returning. Showers from late Wednesday will linger into the day on Thursday. Temperatures this week will range from the middle 70s on Tuesday to the low 70s on Wednesday. End of the work week we are sitting on either side of 70°.

Hurricane Irma: 

Irma is a category two hurricane located in the mid Atlantic Ocean, moving west at 15mph (as of 5pm Saturday). There has been a lot of talk on the forecasted path of this storm, and I wanted to weigh in. There is confidence that Irma will become a major hurricane, strengthening to a category 4 storm by middle part of next week passing north of the Caribbean Sea. When you are looking at this image you see a cluster of different lines, those lines represent different model outputs. Each line is a forecast of where the center of low pressure might go. There is confidence that the center of Irma will stay north of Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic and will start to turn north by Thursday.

Common questions: Should we be concerned? What should we do? 

There is no reason to be concerned or go sounding any alarms (at this point), there will be many meteorologist keeping an eye on Irma over the next several days. As these days go by the forecast will become more focused and concise. Keep monitoring forecast from your local meteorologist or visit: here. What you can do in the mean time? There is no harm in reviewing your action plan, and replenishing any supplies that may have expired or been used. Other than that, just RELAX and enjoy Labor Day!
