It was a chilly morning, and fog was dense across the Northern 1/2 of the state. However, courtesy of High Pressure, we’re in line for beautiful FALL weather with seasonable highs in the low-mid 70s. So, the weather will be perfect for visiting a local pumpkin patch or for a nice stroll with the family around the neighborhood this afternoon. Tonight, lows fall to near 50° and more patchy fog is possible. Otherwise, get ready for a gradual warm up as a southerly wind pumps in the heat. Highs will reach the upper 70s by Wednesday afternoon, and it gets into the low 80s by Thursday afternoon.
The warmer weather arrives ahead of our next storm system that will arrive on Friday into Saturday morning. Scattered showers can be expected, and this is great news considering we need more rain. Thankfully, many cities have a surplus for THIS month in terms of rain…but the ground is still very dry due to previous month’s deficits.
The overall weekend won’t be a wash-out. Any rain that sneaks into Saturday should be gone by the afternoon (at least that’s how it looks right now… stay tuned). It will be a cool weekend with afternoon temps in the 60s and potential 30s by Sunday morning.
