Warm & Sunny

The wave of sunshine and warm temperatures can't last long enough at this point. Okay, maybe a tad warm for those longing for Fall. Today is just as nice as Tuesday. Thursday is a close second place with the addition of afternoon clouds and a rogue late day shower. A cold front approaching from the west Friday slows down pushing the core of cooler and wet conditions now into Saturday. A few showers arrive late Friday afternoon or evening and continue Saturday with a much more fall-esque weekend in store. Sunday is dry, brighter, and warmer.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure is solidly in control for one more day with lots of sunshine and warm temperatures for early October. The warmth sticks around for a couple of more days, but ample sunshine begins to wane as a cold front draws near late in the week.

An increasing southerly flow draws in a little more moisture by Thursday afternoon prompting the mention of a (very) stray late day shower. Friday is somewhat similar, still warm, but becoming mostly cloudy with widely scattered showers developing by Friday evening. The showers are in response to a cold front that moves from the Northern Plains tonight and ends up along the east coast late Saturday.

Due to the slow nature of the front showers remain in the picture Saturday as it turns considerably cooler with a rain induced wedging scenario. Outdoor chores will have to be postponed until Sunday.

Warmth returns pretty quickly early next week despite the passage of a moisture starved cool front late Monday night. As is it stands now a few short-lived showers may accompany the front but they should be limited to sleeping hours.
