Rest of the work week: Wet Wednesday, drying out and cooling off thereafter

We start meteorological fall on a wet note. A cold front will drive southward across the area Wednesday into Wednesday night, and that will trigger scattered showers and thunderstorms as it pushes through and eventually stalls to our south. Behind the front, we will see some rather refreshing cooler and drier air begin to filter into the area. Dewpoints will drop starting Thursday, and by Friday, they should be in the mid-60s as opposed to the mid-70s. It will feel a lot more comfortable, that’s for sure, especially after a pretty muggy August.
