Weekend of Dry Weather Sunshine & Seasonal Temperatures
Halloween Small Shower Chance
The weekend begins on the quiet side and in fact it is going to be a nice quiet dry weekend not just in Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England but for a good chunk of the US. Dry and and high pressure cover the Northeast and Mid Atlantic. It is on the chilly side as we hit lows in the 30s to lower 40s this morning. We should see lots of sunshine today with highs mostly in the 50s to around 60 degrees. The satellite loop shows mainly clear skies and the radars are and will remain nice and quiet.
Most lows tonight will be in the low to mid 30s inland with lots frost and 40 to 45 in warmer urban centers as well as some coastal areas under a clear sky. There are no issues for Sunday either with a good deal of sunshine. Temperatures will probably nudge up a little higher with readings topping into the 60s by late afternoon.
Next week sets up to be a mostly dry week with above average temperatures. It may not be picture perfect every day but much of the time it should be dry. We will be having to deal with nights with low clouds and perhaps some patchy fog and days that evenutally go partly sunny. We do also have the occasional shower risk to deal with.
Low pressure coming out of the Southern Plains and a low off the Southeast coast are the two primary features with high pressure squeezed in between. There is little support for the Plains system as it heads northeast so it will be gradually weakening along with its area of rain. This leaves us with clouds and some sun for Monday, Halloween with highs in the low to mid 60s. I will throw in the chance for a passing showers just in case but it is a good bet that most of you won’t see much.
I’m going to leave the chance for some widely scattered showers on Tuesday and again, most of you probably won’t see much of anything. We will have nights and early mornings with low clouds and some pathcy fog and then go to a mix of sun and clouds. This should cover the forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday.
It is likely that we will be mostly dry for the rest of next week with nights of low clouds and fog and skies going no worse than partly sunny during the day with above average temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s. No widespread rain is forecast through all of next week and possibly even for next weekend! Enjoy the quiet.
