It’s a new Autumn week yet so far it’s the same result…cloudy, cool and damp conditions. Not much will change through the night and tomorrow as we are locked in with NE flow off the water. The onshore flow won’t be as strong tomorrow as it was today so there is a chance for some midday brightening and even a few sunny breaks. The best chance will be inland away from the water. With the lack of sunshine and wind direction temps will struggle to get into the lower 60s. Late in the day a coldfront will work in from the west…along it, another round of showers will break out late in the day and last into the first half of the night. The front itself will clean out this stagnant, moist system and drier air will return with ample sunshine on Thursday. The sun will feel great but it will be a bit tainted due to a brisk westerly breeze.
The upper level flow will pick up speed late this week and the next system will race through on Friday. Clouds will increase out ahead of a coldfront but with dewpoints in the 30s, moisture should be limited and only some spotty showers will accompany the frontal passage in the afternoon. Much more eye catching will be the brief cold blast that follows. High pressure will quickly fill in behind the front and late Friday night winds will slacken off. Under clear and calm conditions temps will nosedive into the 30s in most spots outside of the city. Frost is likely at this point and therefore it’s time to harvest the last of the veggies from the garden. The sun will offset the chill rather quickly on Saturday but daytime highs will still only manage to get to the mid 50s.
After a shot of the coldest air of the season a nice little warmup will commence on Sunday…temps will recover into the 60s Sunday and even 70 on Monday of next week. The trade off for the warmer air will be a cloudier sky and a few showers.
