This may be some of the best weather we’ve experienced all year...warm days, cool nights, quiet and dry, but how long will it last?
This time of year is when we can experience wild swings in our weather. The first couple of weeks in the month were very active with several days of rain and cooler temperatures, but mid-month the pattern has settled down.
As we head into the last full week of October, there are a series of fronts that will roll through the area.The first one arrives Saturday bringing a chance for rain, and the second system will bring much cooler air our way by Tuesday. It will move east over the Great Lakes and toward the east coast, where it will intensify. A third front moves in Thursday into Friday and push some of the coldest air of season our way.
The overall trend the next week or so leans towards cooler than normal temperatures and little to no precipitation.
Due to a blocking ridge of high pressure setting up across the southwest U.S. next week, any systems that move in from the west will travel north along the U.S-Canadian border keeping the coldest air and rain from making into the heartland.
