Saturday Discussion: Return to more October-like weather is just around the corner...

Good Saturday to everyone…as you head out the door we are still dealing with clouds and low level moisture thanks in part to yesterday’s cold air damming event. That will hang tough early on but I feel that conditions will improve as the day progresses. Temperatures this afternoon will get up into the upper 70’s to around 80.

 

As we head into tonight winds should begin to veer around to the southeast, that will lead into a much better second half of the weekend. Sunday will feature partly cloudy skies and another warm day. Everyone should get up into the low 80’s Sunday afternoon, a good 10-15 degrees above normal.

 

This warm summer-like pattern that has been a part of the weather around here over the past 7-10 days is about to change in a big way for next week. Monday will feature continued unsettled weather as a cold front will be moving through increasing rain chances. High’s Monday due to the elevated moisture and cloud cover will remain in the 70’s. But it’s Monday night where the region will begin to feel the difference. A Canadian airmass will be moving in lowering humidity drastically. Skies will clear fast on Monday night and low’s will be close to the 50 degree mark.

 

Tuesday will feature sunny conditions, low humidity and a slight northwest breeze with high’s around 70 on average. With this new airmass in place temperatures will bottom out Tuesday night in the 40’s for everyone. The weather on Tuesday will be a reality check that it is Mid October, after all…

 

The nice, cool fall-like weather will continue through the end of the 7-day forecast…

 

Have a great Saturday!
