WLDY-WJBL NEWS 9-15-20 A warmer day will unfold today with plenty of hazy sun and stronger southwest winds. Gusts over 30 mph will be possible as a tight pressure gradient develops between high pressure to our east and an approaching cold front to the west. Once again there may be a hazy look to the sky as smoke from the wildfires out west continues to flow through the atmosphere several thousand feet up. Afternoon highs should be around 10 degrees above average, climbing into the lower 80′s while dew points around 60 may allow for a slightly muggy feel. The cold front will make steady eastward progress, dropping down into the state Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning. Atmospheric moisture will be lacking, and the result will be just a few extra clouds moving through, while winds shift to the west and northwest, picking up through the day Wednesday. Cooler air will start to arrive, dropping temperatures back down to around average with highs in the low 70′s.
