Weekend Weather Clouds Arrive Saturday Rain Sunday
We finished off another beautiful day of sunshine from start to finish. The last two days were probably the two best days of the Autumn season. Now we head into tonight with clear skies on the satellite from Southeastern New England west into Ohio and south into North Carolina. There are some clouds moving across the Great Lakes into Northern New England as a weak frontal boundary settles slowly southward. Overnight lows will be in the 40s to near 50. There are no issues on the regional or local radars.
There are no changes in the outlook for Friday. Some clouds will be coming down from the northwest with the weak frontal boundary while some high level moisture comes up from the south. This puts is in the middle with a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the 60s.
I’m not seeing any important changes in how things play out this weekend. Low pressure right now is developing in Texas as well as a low in the Southwest Gulf of Mexico. That low could briefly become a tropical or subtropical depression or tropical storm before it merges non tropical system over Texas. This is going to make for a very wet feed of tropical moisture moving northward into the Tennessee and Ohio Valley and eventually into the Northeast and Northern Mid Atlantic.
Saturday look for arriving clouds from south to north with highs in the upper 50s to some lower 60s. Some rain will likely be well west of the coast late Saturday and it will wait for the daytime Sunday for the bulk of the rain to occur. Highs Sunday will be in the 60s. We are still going to be holding on to rainfall amounts of a half inch to an inch with lower amounts south of NYC and higher north and northeast.
i still haven’t figured out where we are going next week with a system possible going into Halloween and another one to follow next weekend. Monday we will see some sunshine returning with highs in the 60s. Tuesday lets call for a mix of sun and clouds for now with highs in the 60s.
