Summer warmth to start October

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

WARM DAYS:  A dying cold front brings us clouds and maybe a stray shower early today, but the overall dry pattern continues to close out the week.  We’re also feeling more summer like too and some warm and humid air nudges northward into the state.  Expect highs today in the upper 70s with gradual clearing.  Wednesday we’re in the low 80s and Thursday and Friday we’re near 80°.  Friday comes with a tiny shower chance too, but most stay dry all week long!


Humidity rises through the end of the week, feeling a bit more summer like.

WEEKEND:  Saturday looks partly cloudy, warm, humid, and dry.  By Sunday, we cloud up a bit more as our next front moves east.  The main energy of the front rolls north as a small lobe pinches off over the Deep South.  So Sunday, we’ll see a late day rain chance as the front moves through.  Quickly, a low to our south develops and races north along the Atlantic coastal states.  This will bring our best shot at rain on Monday.  Highs will hit the low 80s Saturday and hover near 80° for Sunday with gradual cooling to start next week.

Enjoy a terrific Tuesday.  Happy October!  Here’s a look at the averages for the month!
