October is certainly starting off on a summery note, isn’t it? More 80s are on tap for the rest of the work week along with the risk for a few pop up showers and storms; however, dry spots should out number the wet spots during the coming days. Things continue to look interesting for the weekend with tropical moisture and a cold front teaming up. They may produce areas of heavy rainfall by Saturday evening but the timing isn’t set in stone just yet. Stay tuned for more details on that later this week. Here is the latest detailed First Alert Forecast:
Tonight: Plan on a mix of stars and clouds with just an isolated shower or two possible. Patchy fog and low clouds may redevelop late. Lows should be in the low to mid 60s with calm wind.
Wednesday: Warm and humid air may give rise to a few showers and storms during the day. The favored region for moisture still appears as if it will be just to our west but I am going to keep a 30% chance going for our area. Highs will easily warm into the mid 80s if there is enough sunshine.
Thursday & Friday: Fairly quiet weather is expected but a pop up shower or storm can’t be ruled out each day. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s while overnight lows should be in the mid 60s.
Weekend: Tropical moisture and a strong cold front may team up to give the Twin States a good dose of showers and storms. The timing on everything still needs to be fine tuned but many computer models hint at an increasing threat of rain by Saturday afternoon and evening. Cooler and drier air will win out by the time the weekend comes to an end.
