Weather Perfection Continues

Sunshine abounds again today with warm late-September temperatures. If you like today, then you will also love Wednesday. Dry weather continues through the weekend, with perhaps some extra clouds to contend with, starting on Friday. This should not detract from an otherwise lovely stretch of weather days. Temperatures will remain a bit above normal through the period.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure continues its dominance on our weather today with bright sunshine and unseasonably warm temperatures. We will have a backdoor cold front sag southward from the Mid-Atlantic on Wednesday, then continue south of the area on Thursday.

The front is moisture-starved, so the only thing to expect is perhaps a few extra clouds. Temperatures will be slightly cooler by Friday before rebounding a few degrees over the weekend.

It has to end sometime, right? October is the driest month of the year on the calendar, so we normally can expect more dry days than wet ones. However, another cold front with better moisture transport will probably get close enough to introduce some shower opportunities toward the end of this forecast cycle, and beyond.

The Atlantic tropics are rife with activity, but none that pose U.S. threats at this time. The main active feature today is major Hurricane Sam over the open central tropical Atlantic Ocean. It will pass east of Bermuda in a few days then recurve out to sea.
