A cold front is approaching from the NW right now…out ahead of it, winds are a bit gusty but temps will climb to a mild range of 55-60. Clouds will overspread the area late in the day but this frontal passage should stay dry and rain-free. The front will slide through tonight and temps will fall off to the coldest levels of the season…most spots will be in the 20s by morning.
Good Sunday morning! A band of rain along a cold front is working through this early morning…all wet weather associated with it will be out of here by 9AM and west winds will pick up behind it drying us out nicely for the day. Sunshine will be prevalent along with a few puffy clouds this afternoon, the breeze will be noticeable and temps respectable in the mid to upper 50s.
Enjoy the day folks…temps will climb into the middle and upper 60s, almost 10 degrees above normal. But this is it, as a cold front advances in from the west and sweeps through this evening and ushers in an abnormally chilly airmass. Along the front, a skinny line of showers is marching across the Northeast and may produce a few brief showers later today. Following the frontal passage, cold air will come pouring in and for the foreseeable future temps will hover around or slightly higher than 50 degrees…almost 10 degrees below normal.
A cold front is in the process of washing out across the area and the clouds associated with it will be clearing for sunshine. Without a strong push of cold air behind it temps will actually climb into the lower 70s…more than 10 degrees above normal levels! The clearing won’t last long because at the tail end of the front, an area of low pressure has formed and more clouds and showers will work in from the SW later tonight. The low will provide more lift and better dynamics so showers are likely over night and some may be briefly heavy. The low will lift out early tomorrow morning and a murky start will transition into a bright and breezy afternoon with highs again around 70 degrees.
Frontal boundaries are having a very tough time getting through the Northeast…with high pressure locked in place and not much moving in the atmosphere these fronts tend to wash out instead of delivering a shot of cold air. The end result…mild temps and lots of clouds. Another front will work in early tomorrow morning but will also fizzle overhead…slight chance for a shower tomorrow morning followed by brightening and warm temps in the 70s tomorrow afternoon.
No complaints here…we continue to see temps near or slightly above the average and intervals of sunshine with very little rain…I see this trend through the weekend.
While we’ve been enjoying sunny, crisp October weather, the Mid-Atlantic is receiving wave after wave of rain and wind. A large storm is swirling off the Outer Banks and is in no hurry to move as it’s cut-off from the steering currents in the upper atmosphere. The storm is now beginning to drift north and clouds and rain continue to get closer and closer. The clouds will thicken up today and combination of limited sun and onshore winds, it will feel pretty raw.
Between the wind, the downpours and the balmy air, yesterday and last night were pretty wild but the weather has quieted down following the passage of a cold front. Autumn air is now streaming back in…this has cooled us off but also lead to ample sunshine. After sunset, temps will drop fast tonight and will settle into the 30s for some communities tomorrow morning only to recover into the lower 60s tomorrow afternoon under mostly sunny skies. High clouds will begin working in from the south late in the day out ahead of a developing coastal storm.
It’s been nearly two full weeks since our last rain drop but that all changes today. A warm front is migrating through the Northeast and the lift associated with, although weak, is generating showers. Clouds will increase this morning with rain showers not far behind. The showers will be scattered but may be briefly heavy and a few will fall around the Sox game this afternoon. The front won’t move much over the weekend and we will be on the cooler side of it for the most part. That means a lot of clouds, cool temps in the mid 60s and perhaps a shower or two but the good news is that most of the weekend will be rain-free.
Welcome to the first day of August…errr October. We may be changing the page on the calendar but this fine stretch of weather knows no boundaries and lives on. Our one chance for a big soaking is drifting into the Canadian Maritimes right now…a miss. As it departs to the NE it will open the doors and let Summer-like warmth in for a few days. Highs will range from the 70s today to the 80s tomorrow to around 80 on Thursday. All days will feature plenty of sunshine.
