Sunday, Oct. 15 2017 Weather Discussion

October has had quite a few tricks over treats so far this year. October has felt more like Aug-tober with the unseasonably warm temperatures and robust, late summer-esque weather setups. A week ago our forecasting area was thoroughly rocked by Hurricane Nate. We wrote a review on it here:

Let's talk about what we have setting up for our week ahead. 


Tonight into the earlier half of tomorrow we will have a cold front that will bring a reasonable chance of rainfall for the area, but this will be nothing close to what we experienced last week as it's a rather mild event with no obvious threats of severe weather. Tomorrow's high will get to the upper 60's possibly lower 70's depending on how quick the cold front can move out. Monday into Tuesday we will feel the temperatures drop down to the low 40's, finally suggesting that fall may actually be around the corner. Tuesday will be the coolest day this week with a high in the mid 60's, overnight low in the low 40's again and sunny conditions as a high pressure builds in behind the front.

Unfortunately this cold snap won't hold it's vigor, but we can say farewell to the 80's (for now). The rest of the forecasting week onto next Sunday is mostly sunny conditions, negligible precipitation probabilities, overnight lows staying in the 40's with the high's peaking back into the 70's, and the upper 70's appearing in again by next weekend.

Calm, benign conditions ahead, thank goodness.

Thank you for reading. Have a blessed week.
