Sunday: next chance of rain in the metro area.
I just read that our minds wander 47 percent of the time. That figure may be low. Psychologists insist that people derive more pleasure and happiness from experiences versus possessions. A vacation excites in a way no gadget can. If I could just ensure a sunny, hassle-free vacation (where the Wi-Fi is broken).
A recent article at Business Insider confirms that reviews on TripAdvisor and Yelp are accidental weather reports. “The best reviews are written on sunny days between 70 and 100 degrees” one researcher concluded. Wet, miserable weather? Your reputation may take a hit. If you want to ask a favor, a raise, or your partner's hand in marriage consider waiting until next May, or late next week, when a few 70s are possible, as a ridge of high pressure builds across the Plains.
Until then seasonably cool weather lingers; a dry sky into Sunday morning. Showers arrive late Sunday - steadier rain Wednesday as a southern storm pushes due north.
Long range European guidance suggests we haven't seen the last mild front of the season. Although another 80-degree day is doubtful I bet we pick up at least one or two days above 70F by Halloween.
Now excuse me while I troll VRBO.com.
