Today's afternoon high of 82° was 11° above the norm for October 14th, but I'm not sure anyone was complaining. Our gorgeous morning and early afternoon quickly gave way to a blustery early evening as wind gusts climbed as high as 30 mph in some spots. Temperature however, are expected to remain quite comfortable though the evening ahead; we'll only fall as low as 61° by 10PM and only dip to 54° by early Thursday morning. Unfortunately, Thursday will have little in common with our Wednesday.
A passing cold front Thursday will not only flood the region with overcast skies and cooler temperatures, but also bring about our next round of rainfall. A line of rain is expected to pass across the Tri-State between 7AM and 3PM tomorrow and while conditions won't exactly be pleasant, rainfall totals are expected to remain below 0.10". After only reaching 64° Thursday afternoon, temperatures by the predawn hours Friday will have dipped into the mid 30s for the first time in over a week.
Friday looks anything but warm - the day's anticipated afternoon high of 59° will mark our coolest in just over 5 months! The last time we dealt with a day that cool was on May 13th, when we hit just 57° - that night's expected low of 35° will tie for our coolest temperature since the morning of May 9th. At least some slightly warmer weather returns for the weekend ahead. Saturday's 66° will give way to Sunday's high of 67°, but another cold front will again drop temperatures for our Monday. As of now, we're only expected to reach 53° that day - if that forecast holds, it'll be our coolest day in over 6 months!
