AUTUMN CHILL FOR THE WEEKEND..CHILLY NIGHTS COOL DAYS
NO RETURN OF HUMIDITY IN THE LONG RANGE
TROPICS ARE QUIET, NO MAJOR STORMS LURKING
Whenever we have a major storm on the scene usually things do tend to calm down somewhat. Now that Hurricane Michael is long gone and passing south of Nova Scotia this evening, we are enjoying the payoff of cool dry Canadian air and clear skies at least to start things off tonight. Winds have been on the gusty side today especially along the coast but they are now dropping off for the most part. Skies will be clear at least until midnight before some clouds start to roll in from the west. Temperatures tonight are going to be cool with most lows in the 40s to near 50 degrees and even some lower 40s in the usual cold spots north and west of the coast and warmer urban centers.
Watching the satellite loop this evening we see clouds approaching from the west with an upper air disturbance. That disturbance is producing some showers in the Midwest and even some snow is showing up on the radars in Central Illinois. That will pass through here Saturday morning. In the meantime our regional and local radars show very little going on at the moment.
Saturday morning will start of cloudy with a few passing showers as this disturbance moves through but by lunch time it should be partly to mostly sunny. It is going to be cool though with highs just in the 50s and Sunday morning will be cold with lows in the 30s to lower 40s. Sunday will be no worse than partly sunny with highs back into the lower 60s.
Monday brings the next cold front with cloudy skies and the risk for afternoon and evening showers and highs in the mid to upper 60s. Then another shot of chilly air comes in behind the front for the middle of next week. The overall pattern now will feature cooler than average air masses going forward. No major storms are in the offing.
