AN EXTENSIVE HIGH PRESSURE AREA CURRENTLY OVER THE CENTER OF THE CONTINENT WILL BRING US VERY COOL WEATHER EARLY THIS UPCOMING WEEK… A GRADUAL WARMUP IS EXPECTED AS THE HIGH MOVES OVER OUR REGION… NO SIGNIFICANT RAIN IS EXPECTED FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE

On Friday, a cold front moved through the region producing an area of light rain. Less than a tenth of an inch of rain fell in most areas. Northwesterly winds flowing around a massive high pressure area over the center of the North American continent will usher in the coldest air of the season so far. Scattered frost is possible in areas away from the water tonight and again on Sunday night. The development of frost depends on the wind speeds. If the winds are calm or very light, frost will be likely as the cold air has a chance to settle near the ground. The high pressure area will slowly move eastward towards the Mid-Atlantic region. We’ll see a gradual moderating of the temperatures back to more seasonal levels as we go through the mid-week period. No significant rain is expected for several days but a sprinkle or light shower is possible on a couple of occasions this upcoming week. Overall, the dry weather pattern is expected to persist for many days to come… As far as the tropics are concerned, the NHC is watching a disturbed area moving slowly west-northwest over the Yucatan Peninsula. When it makes it to the Bay of Campeche, it does have a short window of time to develop into a tropical cyclone. There are no other areas of concern at this time….¬†Enjoy the great fall weather! It seems like it wasn’t long ago, I had my air conditioner on.¬† This morning, I turned my heat on for the first time this season. That’s it for now. Have a great weekend!
