Feeling More Like Winter Than Autumn…

Highlights:

  • Cold pattern
  • Showers give way to scattered snow flurries Saturday
  • Chilly Halloween ahead

Into The Tank…Thursday was a delightful weather day across the region, including sunshine and seasonable temperatures after the cold and frosty start.  Unfortunately, weather won’t be nearly that nice through the duration of our current 7-day forecast period.

A cold front is marching east and will pass through the state from this morning to early afternoon (west to east).  A band of showers will accompany the frontal passage along with strong and gusty winds shifting to the north, and falling temperatures through the day.  Heavier coats will be required by this afternoon.

The air will grow cold enough for lingering moisture to fall as scattered snow flurries Saturday into early Sunday.  – Novelty event only, but the first flakes of the season are always fun to see.  Otherwise, look for a cold and blustery weekend.  Wind chills will fall into the 20s this weekend.

Flipping the page to next week, a reinforcing chilly air mass will settle into the region in time for Halloween.  While considerable cloudiness will be with us, trick-or-treat hours should be cold and dry.

Our next storm system builds in the middle of next week with a chilly light rain overspreading the region by Wednesday.
