Next fall front brings added clouds, sprinkles late Thursday
Temperatures turn much cooler by Friday and the weekend
Another cool night is expected with lows in the upper 40s and low 50s around sunrise Thursday. Skies remain clear with winds turning lighter.
We start the day with mostly sunny skies. Our next cold front approaches the region by late afternoon bringing increased clouds along with a stray shower, mainly to the mountains. By the evening, the front will slowly move east with a few showers possible for areas along/east of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Any rainfall would be very light. This won’t be anything like the front we had earlier in the week. Skies remain variably cloudy with any isolated showers wrapping up before sunrise Friday.
FRIDAY - SATURDAY - SUNDAY
By the end of the week, cooler air quickly filters in behind the second cold front taking afternoon temperatures tumbling to the low/mid 60s through trhe weekend. Overnight lows will slip to the upper 30s to low 40s for the first weekend of October. Skies remain clear both day and night.
Areas of frost could be possible in some of the deeper valley locations Saturday and Sunday morning. It may be a good idea to bring those plants indoors over the weekend just in case.
Most of the tropics are quiet right now, but the season continues into October so things can change quickly! You can get the latest tropical outlook and track details in our Hurricane Center.
