CHILLY AUTUMN SUNSHINE & HIGH CLOUDS TODAY
COLD FRONT APPROACHES MONDAY CHANCE FOR SHOWERS
FOLLOW UP SHOTS OF COOL AIR LATER THIS WEEK
This morning we hit bottom with temperatures in the upper 30s and lower 40s. We have some sunshine but we also have some high clouds. To the west and south we actually have some rain moving through the Ohio Valley this morning but much of that moisture dries out as it moves east. The high cirrus clouds will survive however and that will mask some of the sunshine away. Tempertures today probably won’t get much out of the 50s.
You can see the rain area on the radar moving into West Virginia and Western Virginia this morning. It is a cold rain at that with temperatures there also in the 40s. None of this is being driven by warm tropical air so rainfall amounts are somewhat limited and those showers are definitely not an issue here today.
Monday we see a cold front coming through and there could be one or two showers with that front with temperatures in the 60s before the front goes by. Then we spend the week dealing with chilly air with a second front coming through Wednesday with not much precipitation. Temperatures all week will be below average.
The question for the end of the week and next weekend is another cold front. Behind it is the coldest shot of air of the season coming. The front is forecast to stall with a wave developing on it so that puts next weekend’s weather in question. We also might see it cold enough for the first snows for parts of the Northeast. The colder pattern across North America is the driver and that pattern stays in place going forward in the long range.
