Cool and very dry high pressure continues to be in charge of our weather today. For all you ghosts and goblins out there tonight will feature dry conditions and temps falling back to around 60-65 by 6:00pm tonight. By 9:00the temps will be down into the 50’s with a few western locations dipping into the upper 40’s. That’s very seasonable though and great weather. Just be safe and have a great time.
Tonight an upper level trough will move Southeast from the upper Midwest but this trough doesn’t look like it will be able to swing the cold front through the area. Intead it gets hung up on the Western side of The Appalachian Mountain Range. A few more high clouds will build into the area tomorrow and even in the mountains it will remain dry. High temps will reach the mid and upper 70’s. Towards sunset Wednesday a shower could affect the mountains but those will not be able to move East from there. That spells dry weather for the remainder of the week with moderating temps and a few high clouds here and there.
Friday looks to be the warmest of the days, in the upper 70’s. Those temps could start to fall very late Friday as a back door cold front moves in. This sets the stage for a cloudy and cooler Saturday with temps being held back to normal levels, in the 60’s. Periods of light rain and drizzle are likely Saturday as a strong ridge of high pressure moves over SE Canada. Will feature rain chances 20-30% east of the Blue Ridge and 30-40% right along the Eastern Slopes. Unfortunately it doesn’t appear that the high pressure over Canada will be in a hurry to move out. So we hold those rain chances and cooler weather into the early part of next week.
