WE SHOULD HAVE A NICE FALL WEEKEND WITH PLENTY OF SUNSHINE… A STORM IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP OFFSHORE ON SUNDAY BUT IT SHOULD HAVE NO MAJOR IMPACT ON OUR WEATHER… A MONSTER STORM SYSTEM IMPACTING ALASKA MAY BE ONE OF THE STRONGEST STORMS EVER… THIS STORM SYSTEM WILL IMPACT THE WEATHER PATTERN ACROSS NORTH AMERICA NEXT WEEK

After a very chilly start, Saturday will turn out to be a nice fall day with light winds and plenty of sunshine. A weak cold front is expected to move through our region early Sunday morning. No significant precipitation is expected with the frontal passage. Sunday should be another very pleasant day. A low pressure system is expected to develop offshore on Sunday but weather forecasters seem quite confident that we will not see any major impacts from the offshore storm… The big news in the weather is the huge, intense low pressure system impacting parts of Alaska right now. A barometric pressure of 924 MB was recorded, which makes it possibly the strongest storm system of its kind ever observed on earth! The storm had its origins as a super typhoon in the Western Pacific Ocean. This storm is expected to affect the upper-level wind pattern (jet stream) across the North American continent next week. It should create a huge trough¬†that will pull down an unseasonably cold air mass into the center of the nation. The cold air is expected to¬†eventually reach the East Coast later in the week. We may see some rain later this week but it’s too early to get into too much detail on that. Snow may be a possibility in the western portions of Virginia later this week… So, enjoy the weather this weekend as it appears we may get an early taste of winter next week. That’s it for now. Thanks for reading and have a great day!
