Good Tuesday to one and all. Fall temperatures have arrived and are looking to settle in for the long haul. With a big upper level low spinning our way, the numbers by later this week may actually go way below normal.
Let’s focus on today before rolling ahead.
We will start things out with thermometers in the 40s and end things with upper 60s to low 70s. Skies will feature a mix of sun and clouds, but should stay mainly dry.
The chance for showers will kick back in on Wednesday as our upper low dives into the region from the north. Watch how this thing strengthens and stops right on top of the state:
This will lead to an increase in showers through Thursday and Friday:
A situation like this can sometimes cause temps to stay way down there for afternoon highs. Any day featuring clouds and showers may see the numbers struggle to get out of the 50s. The GFS thinks this happens on Friday:
This upper level low will finally pull away this weekend, but will leave behind some very nice temperatures.
The pattern next week will largely be dictated by what happens to a developing tropical system in the Caribbean. Matthew is likely to head toward the Gulf or southeastern seaboard later next week.
Have a great day and take care.
