Humidity heads south with cold frontal passage

What a difference 24 hours makes! Temperatures this morning are anywhere from 10-15 degrees cooler than yesterday at this time. WXLIVE! is currently sitting at 64 degrees - yesterday is was 79. In fact, a record maximum low temperature was set once again yesterday with a low of 81 degrees at midnight last evening (it dropped to 82 yesterday morning, but the low recorded is a 24-hour low).

This cooldown is thanks to a frontal system that moved through yesterday. If you were outside during the late afternoon or evening, you could probably start to feel the difference as a fresh north breeze was blowing and humidity was dropping. Though it was still hot, the official temperature got to only 94 - breaking a string of 11 straight days of 95+ weather.

For the next couple of days, I expect we will continue to see low humidity levels, though temperatures will remain in the 90s (lower half, not upper!). Morning lows will fall into the 60s for most Mid-Southerners through mid-week.

The Independence Day forecast is now posted at - I'll have more detail on the blog in a couple of days on what to expect with your fireworks forecast.
