Good Tuesday evening!  I hope you are having a great week so far.  The weather has been fantastic and it should stay that way for at least the next week.  We have had very weak waves rolling through and a little stronger (but still weak) wave will roll through on Thursday.  Now remember, we are still sitting in the 57 day cycle, but the cycle has started to shift and the new cycle is already here.  It has just recently started and now my job is to find it which I am currently working on.  I can use the old 57 day cycle for about another 6 weeks as it fades out, but I will easily find the new one here in the next two weeks.  So lets look at Thursday’s system

Look at this same weak system back on June 7th

This will give us some scattered thunderstorms Thursday afternoon and very comfy temps toward the weekend.  We may not make it out of the 70s for highs on Friday.  Lets jump ahead to August 21st.  Here is what eclipse day is looking like as of now.

Check out my long range forecast below.  On my next blog I will update it into October for you.
