The first full week of October will bring us a variety of weather between now and next weekend.
We’re starting the week off on a cool note. High pressure will be located to the north, while the remains of Ian will generate a new low pressure area to our south, off the Mid-Atlantic coastline. The gradient in between the two will produce some gusty northeast to east winds for the next few days. This will result in below normal temperatures. The high to the north will help keep the region dry for the most part, but the low to the south, which will take its time moving out to sea, will be closer enough to bring some clouds in, with a few showers possible, mainly near the South Coast, and mainly Tuesday into early Wednesday.
By Thursday, the low finally pulls away, and the high slides eastward as well, resulting in sunshine and warmer temperatures. Friday looks to be similar, but a strong cold front will be advancing toward the region. While it will be starved for moisture, it will usher the coolest airmass so far this fall into the region. Saturday looks to be breezy and quite cool, with a widespread frost and/or freeze possible Saturday night as the winds die down. Sunday should remain dry, but temperatures will remain on the cool side.
