A beautiful Autumn weekend continues today, with high pressure still in control. But a warming trend will start today with more southwest winds, as high pressure begins to shift further south and east of the region. Highs will be in the upper 60 to lower 70s with plenty of sunshine today. These temperatures are already slightly above normal for this time of year. Clouds will be on the increase tonight as a weakening cold front approaches the region. Some isolated or widely scattered showers are possible later tonight and tomorrow morning. But with limited lift and moisture, these will likely be on light side.
The cold front likely washout day during the day tomorrow, as ridge from the southwest, begins building over the region. Clouds should break for more sunshine by the afternoon and unseasonable warm airmass will be in the region with temperatures well above normal. West-southwesterly winds will cause temperatures to rise into middle to upper 70s to near 80 over many parts of the region tomorrow afternoon. Some other highlights, for this upcoming week:
- More sunshine and unseasonably warm weather is likely for Tuesday and Wednesday with highs the lower to middle 80s.
- Near record high temperatures are also possible by Tuesday and Wednesday.
- Model guidance suggests a large storm system off the East coast will impact the region some rainfall late this week.
