OCTOBER WEATHER USUALLY DRY, WEEK AHEAD OFFERS NO BIG ISSUES
LESLIE IN THE CENTRAL ATLANTIC POSES NO THREAT HERE
We enjoyed a good looking Sunday of sunshine for the most part and now a new week begins with weak weather systems moving through from time to time. No big storms are on the horizon which is good and I don’t see any serious rain issues going forward. We have an upper high in the Eastern US that is keeping things tame and on the warm side of normal. Nothing more than some passing clouds are forecast overnight with most lows in the 50s to lower 60s.
Since the upper high is on the flat side ( stronger to the east and west vs north and south) it will keep us close to the frontal boundary that lies to the north. A front may try and back door its way in Monday night into Tuesday but showers with that will stay to our north. Over us Monday should be partly sunny with highs in the 70s. Tuesday we should see warm conditions with limited sun. Highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s. There could be a few showers Tuesday night as this weather system passes through. But note that it is rather weak so don’t expect much change Wedneday and Thursday. It will be on the warm side with some sun both days. Highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s.
For the longer range that upper high in the east will remain in place into next week. However another front pushing through Thursday night will put us in a cooler onshore flow for Friday and into next weekend as a high goes by to our north.
Eventually that front moves northward next weekend and we go back to warm and somewhat humid conditions but with no big threats for rain. The strong upper high over the Eastern US creates an environment of lower than normal pressure over the Southwest Atlantic into the Gulf of Mexico so we will need to watch this area for the potential for tropical storm development next weekend. Tropical Storm Leslie is out in the Central Atlantic and is likely to be out there for the next week to 10 days with no threat to any land. Tropical Storm Rosa will bring heavy rains Monday into Tuesday over the Southwest US with flash flooding but none of that moisture is coming here with the strong upper high in the Eastern US.
