The upcoming work-week forecast is looking pretty good. This includes the Halloween forecast. Temperatures are going to warm up, and we will have a pretty dry week until Friday.
Today a weak cool front is drifting through the region. Low pressure is well to our north. High pressure is just to our south.
It’s not much cooler north of the front. So it’s more of a dry wind-shift at this tie. We’ll be dry today, but we may catch a few clouds from time-to-time. Winds will be out of the southwest then west at 10-15mph. Some of the gusts could be up to 20mph.
We’ll be just a little cooler tomorrow with lows in the 40s (a few 30s inland). We’ll be in the low 60s during the afternoon. We’ll have a northwest breeze. Starting up on Wednesday we’ll go into a warmer pattern for a short time. We’ll have a broad area of southwesterly winds. This will scoop up the warmth into our region. We’ll have fair skies on Wednesday with high temperatures rising into the low 70s. This will be during the day for Halloween. During the evening temps will cool slightly into the 60s. With fair skies it looks like a great evening for trick-or-treaters.
We’ll warm up even more on Thursday with high temperatures aiming for the upper 70s. Skies will be partly cloudy. On Friday we’ll have a cold front stall out just to our west. This will allow for a long stretch of southerly winds along the coast. It will pull up some moisture. So we’ll have scattered showers and a few thunderstorms. After that the models differ on how fast the front will move east and offshore. I’ll have more details on that in tomorrow’s blog.
In the Atlantic there is a hurricane again. It is Oscar. It is southeast of Bermuda, and it is currently moving west. However, there is a high confidence that it will start to move north soon. Then it will likely head north/northeast, and it will stay out to sea.
A couple of rain bands may brush up against Bermuda, but I don’t think it will be much. We may see some higher waves along the east coast. Maybe surfers will be able to take advantage with wet suits later this week. Stay tuned.
