Good Friday everyone. The first weekend of October is upon is and things are about to take a big turn toward the nasty side. A late November-looking cold front is sweeping toward the area today and will bring the coldest air of the season for the next several days.
We will be able to squeeze out one more very nice weather day today. Highs will warm well into the 70s under partly sunny skies. Clouds will slowly increase during the afternoon as our winds gust up.
Our cold front will begin to affect the region this evening as showers increase from west to east. Follow all the action with our weather trackers:
The rain will increase overnight into early Saturday before tapering off in the early afternoon. A wave of low pressure will then develop to our southwest and roll our way, with more cold showers for Saturday night and early Sunday. The NAM Simulated Radar has a good handle on it all:
Temps Saturday will hit the mid and upper 50s for highs. Sunday looks to be the coldest day, with morning readings in the upper 30s with afternoon highs only around 50 degrees.
Our temps should then head toward freezing or below by Monday morning, and this might set us up for a freeze.
Two more cold fronts move in next week. The first arrives Tuesday night and early Wednesday, with the next push of cold air by Friday.
Have a great day and take care.
