Welcome Drying

It’s only the 5th of October, but we’ve already received more than the normal amount of rainfall for the entire month. So, it goes without saying that a quiet, dry stretch of weather is welcome. Morning clouds today gave way to a healthy amount of sun this afternoon. Tuesday through Thursday look great, with abundant sunshine and warmer temperatures. Friday doesn’t look bad, but shower chances will be on the increase by late in the day and Friday night.

Forecast Discussion

The upper low which plagued our weather this past weekend is in the process of exiting the Southeast coast of the United States. With decreasing influences from the upper low, today was a bit cloudy to start, but the sun is coming on strong this afternoon giving temperatures a good boost.

Tuesday through Thursday look like fine weather days. High pressure will be in control of our weather, and we can expect lots of sunshine and noticeably warmer temperatures after our clammy, cool weekend. There will be some extra clouds by Thursday afternoon, however.

The next weather feature of interest will be a cold front that will be heading our way toward the end of the workweek. It will bring some showers with it, arriving by later Friday afternoon and Friday night, although we're not expected a lot of rainfall with the front. With a bit of luck, we can get the front through here in time for a nice October weekend coming up.
