A Sunny Dry Columbus Day Weekend Starts Off Cool Warms To Seasonable
The Columbus Day holiday weekend begins and we have cool dry air in the Eastern US. An upper trough moved offshore overnight with some passing showers and now we move to a mix of sun and clouds and gradually skies should become mostly sunny later in the day. It will be on the cool side of average today as highs will be in the mid to upper 50s at best. Some warm spots could hit 60 in spots. The weekend starts with below average temperatures. The radars might show some scattered showers well inland but for the vast majority it will be a nice day.
Tonight will be a clear cool night with most lows in the 40s. Some 30s are likely well inland north and west of the coast. The core of the cool air will settle along the coast and then high pressure holds there for Sunday into Monday. We are going to see sunshine on Sunday with highs climbing back to the low and mid 60s.
We will gravitate temperatures back to seasonal levels on Monday with most highs in the middle 60s and we will have a nice day of sunshine. It caps off an almost perfect autumn weekend.
Tuesday and Wednesday will be dry with some sunshine. Most highs will be in the mid to upper 60s. Perhaps a warm spot or two will hit near 70 degrees. The next cold front will arrive Thursday with a southwest wind ahead of it and showers coming in later in the day into Thursday night.
This will lead to a stretch of weather where temperatuers could evenually be 10 to 15 degrees below normal in the long range. We don’t have any big coastal storms to worry about a the pattern favors weather fronts moving through the east on a regular basis.
