Nice Night Ahead Chance Showers Friday Morning Ahead of Cool Dry Autumn Weekend
JOE & JOE WEATHER SHOW WEDNESDAY 9/30/2020 7PM
WEATHER IN 5 WEDNESDAY 9/30/2020 9AM
Our weather improved quite nicely today as a strong cold front swept offshore. 2 to 3 inches of rain fell last night across most of the area with some places getting a little above that range. This at least dents the dry conditions we have experienced here and it also puts a dent in the severe drought across much of New England. Lows tonight will be in the 50s inland and upper 50s to low 60s along the coast under a clear sky. The satellite picture shows skies have cleared out over much of the Northeast and the local radars are now nice and quiet.
Thursday is setting up as a nice day of sunshine with seasonal temperatures. Highs will reach 70 to 75 in the afternoon. Some clouds could show up later in the day and they will increase ahead of a cold front that will come through early Friday morning. There could be a few showers when that front passes but they should be done by mid morning Friday. Weather conditions improve but it will turn colder behind the second front as a large high builds southward from the Great Lakes. Some sunshine returns Friday afternoon. Highs however will just be in the 60s.
The weekend looks good with Saturday perhaps being a slightly better day than Sunday. High pressure controls and we will have lots of sunshine. Morning lows Saturday will be in the 40s with highs Saturday just in the low to mid 60s. The same highs hold for Sunday but we will see sunshine giving way to arriving clouds. The next upper trough will be swinging across the Great Lakes and low pressure likely develops off the Virginia coast. Another round of rain is likely later Sunday night into Monday morning but as long as the low moves along we could see improvement later Monday. Below normal temperatures will be the rule going forward through much if not all of next week.
