After a rather chilly week with the first flakes of snow for some portions of the region and temperatures well below average, as we head into the weekend, the pattern will be reversing to quite the opposite as high pressure builds into the region. It might end up being the first fully dry weekend in quite some time!
For the first time in what seems like ages, we will see a big, large blue H on the weather map over our region, allowing for dry and seasonable conditions to stick through the weekend across our area. If you have any outdoor plans this weekend, the weather will be absolutely perfect. If you did not make any plans yet, do so and try to view some of the lingering fall foliage across the area!
Friday will bring a beautiful end to the week with generally mostly sunny skies expected with high temperatures ranging from the mid-50s to lower-60s for portions of the southern counties. Expect a southerly wind to develop from 5-10 MPH during the afternoon hours, making for a quite pleasant afternoon!
Saturday will be quite a copy-and-paste from Friday’s weather, although expect generally a bit more cloud cover. Temperatures will be rather similar, with highs reaching the upper-50s to lower-60s during the afternoon hours, generally around 5 degrees above average. Expect generally calm winds of less than 5 MPH. If you are planning any outdoors plans for Saturday, the outdoor weather conditions look to be great!
We will see our warmest day on Sunday as temperatures rise into the upper-5os to mid-60s for much of the region under a mix of sun and clouds. Temperatures will be 5-10 degrees above average. Expect a slight westerly wind to develop during the afternoon hours of 5-10 MPH, but it should remain very low impact. Can you believe it, after such a long time, we might finally see a completely dry weekend for the entire forecast area!
Our next threat for precipitation will come on late Monday into Tuesday morning as the next potential cold front swings through. Anyway, with the rather comfortable and dry conditions, hopefully you can squeeze in as many outdoor activities as possible this weekend! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out.
