Well, this week has been a week of rather uneventful weather: sunshine, sunshine, sunshine. And comfortable temperatures to go along with all that sunshine. I for one am not complaining. Perfect weather for sleeping and warm enough for working outside and not sweating like crazy.
It will last for a few more days. Then it shall end.
Sunny Saturday, Sunday, and into Monday, although clouds will be increasing Monday, as high pressure dominates our region. Day time highs will be around 70 and nighttime lows around 45 for the most part. Starting Tuesday things will change.
A deep trough will form a low-pressure area near the Gulf of Mexico and this storm will loft north-northeast into our area. It will bring a lot of moisture along with it. I would expect some heavy rain, and possibly some embedded thunderstorms as well. It will be turn much colder for Wednesday and then after some moderation Friday and Saturday, another deep trough will bring more heavy rain, with a possible tropical connection to the area on Oct 29/30. Behind this second front is even colder air.
I do not see any snow, nor any flurries either. This pattern through next weekend could bring some snow showers to the mountains to our west, and through the Great Lakes. There is at least one more push of cold air the first few days of November, and that could enable us to see our first snowflakes in the air. Yes, after Monday, late fall weather takes hold.
