October WARMTH!

  • 70s the next few days, even with lots of clouds
  • Warmest Wednesday, mid to upper 70s
  • Widespread rain/thunderstorms Thursday
  • Cooler & Drier By the weekend

Patchy fog and drizzle develop later tonight. That's the price we pay for incoming WARMTH. A strong, deep southerly flow will develop tomorrow thanks to high pressure in the western Atlantic and a storm (cut off low) stuck spinning in the midsection of the nation.  This set up will bring warmer air AND make it turn increasingly humid too!

Tomorrow looks warm despite lots of clouds.  Some brightening/breaks of sun are possible in the afternoon.  Wednesday is very similar.

Rain arrives Thursday with embedded thunderstorms. This upcoming front will have plenty of moisture to tap into…from the Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf Of Mexico and perhaps even Hurricane Gonzalo. (Let me just emphasize, Hurricane Gonzalo will NOT make landfall here, we just might link up to a little of the moisture.)

Cooler, drier air will lag behind the front. So Friday will remain mild for one more day with high temps in the low 70s. The real drop off will occur over the weekend with 60s returning.
Check out the front on Thursday and how it links up to Hurricane Gonzalo
