SATURDAY’S (OCT 24) HIGH WILL PROBABLY BE OVER 30 DEGREES WARMER THAN LAST LAST SATURDAY’S HIGH TEMPERATURE… WILL WE SEE THUNDERSTORMS TODAY?… TEMPERATURES TREND BACK DOWN ON SUNDAY

Last weekend, we couldn’t even break the 50 degree mark as clouds, drizzle, and a north wind kept us over 20 degrees below normal. The weather setup this weekend is very different than last week’s pattern. A very slow moving cold front is going to move through our region Saturday night, and it might bring a few showers or thunderstorms as it moves through. Saturday will be a very warm day for this time of year. There will be lots of clouds but the sun will be out at times. As the cold front approaches later in the day, the coverage of the showers and storms should increase, but there is plenty of uncertainty as to how much rain we will receive and whether there will be any severe weather. In Wakefield’s discussion this morning, there is talk of possible isolated torndoes and storms. Please stay tuned to the local media today for any developments. Note that I watched WAVY 10 this morning and there didn’t seem to be any concern for severe weather today. So, we’ll see how it all pans out. Either way, Sunday will be a cooler day with a northerly breeze and the forecast is basically for dry weather. A coastal low may form Monday or Tuesday possibly bringing some moisture to us here locally, but I’ll have an update on that on Sunday. Let’s concentrate first on today’s frontal system. So, enjoy the summer-like conditions while they last.
