THIS EVENING: The puffy cumulus clouds around right now will clear leaving mostly clear skies. Temps will fall from around 70 to near 60 by 10pm.
MORNING: River valley fog possible, otherwise, a mix of clouds and sunshine as a cold front scoots in from the north. Morning lows will not be as cold but still running chilly and below average in the upper 40s to low 50s.
TOMORROW: Clouds will mix in and out of the sunshine as the front presses southward. Not a lot of moisture so don’t expect anything more than an isolated sprinkle at most. Highs should still warm to the upper 60s to low 70s. Clouds will thin out as we head into the late afternoon and early evening hours. After a calm start, winds will pick up from the north-northwest 5-10mph.
OUTLOOK: While the coldest air stays in the northern part of the state we will still get a taste of the chilly air mass as low’s Friday drop to the mid and upper 40s. Lows will likely drop the upper 30s for the northern tier part of the state. Plenty of sunshine by afternoon to warm us but we’ll only manage upper 60s to near 70. Friday night looks dry and cool for Friday night football but bring your jacket as temps will be fall like and chilly. Return flow sets up for the weekend allowing for milder air to stream in. It won’t be as chilly Saturday morning with lows in the mid 50s and we’ll warm nicely by afternoon into the mid 70s with the winds more southerly, however, a few more clouds will mix with the sunshine. Sunday an approaching system will push more clouds into the area, temps will get a nice boost to the upper 70s to near 80. Few sprinkles or drops expected to arrive late towards evening but the daytime hours remain dry.
Cold front will pass sometime early Monday but there remains difference amongst the models as too exactly when. Showers may linger into the start of the week. Fall officially arrives Monday and it will certainly feel like it as we head into Tuesday with a strong area of high pressure providing a shot of chilly Canadian air. Highs will only be in the 60s both Tuesday and Wednesday and lows in the low 40s will be the chilliest yet towards the middle of next week.
