See you another day, fall
Beyond today, rain chances fall to zero through the weekend. Above average temperatures will prevail.
Today and Tonight: We’ll continue to carry the mention of a “spotty shower” in the forecast through Thursday, but most locations will continue to stay dry. Partly sunny skies will allow highs to peak in the mid 80s with light southeasterly winds. Overnight, skies will go mostly clear with a low in the low 60s.
Up Next: Friday through Sunday will be sunny and warm with highs in the mid 80s. Overnights will stay clear with lows in the low 60s. Expect above average warmth to carry into next week as well. As for Halloween, trick-or-treaters won’t have any trouble finding nice weather, or candy (hopefully). Through Monday Afternoon and Evening thermometers will drop out of the 80s and through the 70s. No rain is expected next week until at least Thursday.
The Tropics: No tropical activity is expected over the next five days.
Forecast Discussion: With a shortwave trough pulling away from the region, so too leaves any upper forcing available for organized precipitation. A spotty shower may develop in the easterly flow ahead of a cold front dissipating to our north, but forecast area rain coverage will stay below 10%. The best chance at seeing a shower will be in coastal areas. By Friday, a zonal flow will once again take hold equating dry and seasonable weather. Some weak upper ridging is shown on the forecast models Saturday through Monday which would lead to high and low temperatures running above average. With dew points remaining in the low 60s, the drier air should allow decent diurnal temperature ranges to persist and thus afternoons will be warmer with respect to averages than mornings. The next cold front isn’t even hinted at by the models until late next week.
