The windy conditions we’ve dealt with over the past few days is due to our location along the outer fringe of Sandy. Even with winds dying down this evening, they’ll still be high enough to keep most of us above freezing under clear skies. Patchy frost is still possible in low-lying and wind sheltered areas in our northern counties this evening. Expect lows tonight to drop into the middle 30s.
Look for sunny skies on Monday with highs right around 60 degrees. Winds will pick up once again during the afternoon hours tomorrow. Gusts as high as 25 MPH are possible.
Monday night looks to be the coldest night of the week. With Sandy pushing weakening and a ridge of high pressure moving in from the northwest, winds will likely subside allowing most of us to drop close to 32 degrees. A freeze warning may be issued if conditions are favorable.
After a cool first part of the work week, high pressure will begin shifting east of the region late in the work week allowing weak southerly flow to set up. Temperatures will climb into the upper 60s and low 70s by Friday.
Our next rain chance looks to be one week from tonight. Models continue to agree of a front that should bring us rain by Monday November 5. Until then, enjoy the dry and cool conditions.
