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.
Is this the best month ever or what…we’ve only had one day with measurable rain in the last two weeks! Heading into the weekend not much will change. High pressure is in charge and although we will have more clouds than sun today the weekend will be loaded up with sunshine and warmer temps in the lower to middle 70s.
Our one chance for substantial rain is disappearing and the dry stretch rolls on. High pressure will be in charge through the weekend with cool nights and seasonably mild days which will include ample sunshine. We’ll also have onshore breezes which may throw clumps of clouds our way at times.
Do you recall yesterday? Oh good, then dress the same today…just not the same clothes though. Seriously, not much has changed with high pressure to our NW and low pressure to our NE we continue with mainly sunny skies and seasonably cool temps in the upper 60s.
Not much to complain about these days…sure it’s a bit chilly in the morning and the breeze can be somewhat annoying at times…but we are living on easy-street right now with no major changes until perhaps the end of the weekend. We will remain essentially cloudless during this stretch with afternoon highs near 70 degrees and overnight lows in the lower 40s.
A seriously simple week ahead from the weather department. Today marks the first full day of Autumn and it certainly feels like it…a bit brisk and crisp but all in all a lovely day. High pressure is centered to our West while low pressure is centered to our east. Due to downstream blocking in the North Atlantic, these two features won’t move much from their present positions for days and days. The result will be sun filled days with high temps close to normal levels…around 70…and clear cool nights with a few spots dipping into the 30s. There is any sign of rain at this time, at least not through next weekend!
