Beautiful Fall Weekend

One cannot ask for nicer weather in late October. Our warm October has again slowed leaf color changes--late October still has lots of green at lower elevations. Temperatures today are near seasonal average but will be several degrees warmer Sunday. The coming week brings two fronts (Monday and early Friday), periods of rain associated with those fronts, and much cooler weather.

Forecast Discussion

Pleasant high pressure covers us today and Sunday on its way to the Atlantic. We have mostly clear skies, near average temperatures today, and warmer temperatures Sunday.

A front moves through from the west Monday night. Clouds increase Sunday night and showers arrive by Monday afternoon, continuing Monday night, and maybe into Tuesday morning.

Much cooler temperatures arrive Tuesday on a brisk NW wind. Clouds decrease late Tuesday, and the daytime Wednesday is mostly clear with cool temperatures.

The next front is associated with low pressure moving slowly from the center of the country early in the week, to the Ohio Valley (Thursday) and to New York (Friday). Timing details still eave some questions; however, the general idea is increasing clouds late Wednesday and showers beginning by Thursday afternoon (maybe sooner). Showers continue Friday and Saturday. Temperatures become even cooler beginning Thursday.
