Good Thursday, everyone. Our weather pattern is going from one extreme to the other for early October. The summer temps are now giving way to a pattern straight out of November, with very chilly temps settling in.
Our day is starting with rain rolling across the eastern half of the state, with clearing skies and falling temps. Let’s begin by tracking the drops out of the state:
As mentioned, rain ends from west to east Thursday as chilly air sweeps in. Temps drop into the upper 50s and low 60s for afternoon readings.
Clearing skies Thursday night will allow temps to drop into the 30s for many areas. The NAM and Hi Res NAM are in frost levels:
Friday’s highs stay in the 50s with afternoon clouds increasing. Those clouds are ahead of a fast-moving system that can spit out a few showers Friday night and Saturday morning. The NAM continues to show a few flakes just to our north:
Our next system arrives on Sunday and is what’s left of a Hurricane Sergio from the Pacific. This will bring very chilly showers our way Sunday into early Monday. Another weak system follows that up Monday night and may produce some more flakes not too far away:
More cold shots are on the way after that, with frost and freezing conditions a possibility to follow that up.
Have a great day and take care.
