Big-time warmth on the way

Good Friday, folks. Summer continues to dominate the weather pattern across our part of the world. The forecast over the next week is more like early September than late October and early November.

This bodes well for all those outside fall activities over the weekend. Highs Friday will reach 65 to 70, but that pales in comparison to what’s coming.

Highs from Saturday through Wednesday should top out at 75 to 80 degrees each day on gusty southwesterly winds. Those numbers could put us within range of a few record highs.

The early call for all the ghosts and goblins is for some very good weather:

A cold front arrives Thursday, with the potential for a shower or thunderstorm. That should knock the numbers down, and it might be the beginning of a big pattern change.

The second week of November should see the jet stream realign with a ridge up the west coast and a dip across the east:

There are growing signs of winter trying to start earlier than normal this year. That might include the middle and end of November. Stay tuned.

Make it a great Friday and take care.
