Cooler, Becoming Breezy

A cold front pushed through this morning without much fanfare. Behind the front a stout northwest flow cranks up this evening lasting until Thursday. The wind isn't a "big story", but it's the bigger part of the story since there isn't too much going on this week. How nice is it when a gusty wind is all you have to write home about? Today will be a little cooler than Monday and tomorrow is borderline chilly when you factor in the breeze. The theme late week into the weekend is sunny & seasonal!

Forecast Discussion

Our weather hiccup of the week is a cold front that pushed through the mountains this morning. The front is part of a deepening area of low pressure which turns into an impressive Nor'easter in the coming days. Clouds arrived ahead of the front yesterday afternoon...late today comes the wind. There isn't much moisture for widespread showers but a persistent northwest flow means a passing shower or two isn't completely off the table until Wednesday morning. Note to self, almost all of us stay dry. Temperature-wise, we'll end up five degrees cooler than yesterday and subtract another five degrees (or better) off that tomorrow as the core of the cold air arrives.

High pressure builds Thursday and Friday marking the beginning of brighter and milder days. In the big scheme of things the forecast is very nice this weekend into early next week. Another disturbance sweeps over the southern Appalachians Saturday morning. Any unsettled weather that it brings is short lived and a quick morning shower is not out of the question but we'll not put that idea on paper just yet. That's it, Sunday through early next week look about as good as it gets for late October.
