Good Wednesday to one and all. Some areas have already seen patchy frost, but it’s a widespread frost threat tonight and Thursday morning for the entire region. This continues to be part of a pattern that’s skewed much colder than normal for our part of the world.
Highs today are in the mid and upper 50s with a mix of sun and clouds. Winds will be gusty as a cold front moves through. That front has no rain with it, but it does knock our temps down even more tonight. Many thermometers will be in the low 30s with frost a good bet. Green thumbs are on high alert.
The rest of Thursday looks good with highs in the lower 50s.
Rain then returns to the region on Friday as a system zips in from the southwest. That means some wet weather for high school football fans.
The blast of cold coming in behind this front is sharper on some models than others. The latest European Model has a sharper trough diving in Saturday night and early Sunday:
That run is trying to spit out a few flakes during that time:
That’s something the GFS was showing a few days ago, but it’s backed off that look for now. Still, both models are bringing a healthy shot of cold into the region for Sunday and Monday.
I’m going to continue to focus on the final week of October for the potential for a slow-moving big storm system across the eastern half of the country. That signal is healthy on the Ensembles:
Make it a great day and take care.
