Many areas fell into the 30s Friday night leading to frost for the first time this season for some. With clear and calm conditions tonight, we’ll have another shot at seeing frost across the entire area. Be sure to protect those plants! Highs will return to the upper 50s to mid 60s Sunday with plenty of sunshine. Warming weather is expected next week with highs back in the 70s and more sun.


Another Frost Advisory goes in effect tonight for our entire area until 9 AM Sunday. This means that frost will be possible, especially in low-lying areas and open fields. Lows look likely to fall into the low-mid 30s west, to mid-upper 30s east under clear skies.

Lows fall into the 30s again leading to potential for more frost.

Get suggested road trips and see how the colors are looking around the region.

The colors are looking fantastic along Abbott Lake at the Peaks of Otter Lodge.


After another chilly start we will see plenty of sun and afternoon highs a few degrees warmer. Some locations could see mid 60s with upper 50s in the mountains.


High pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere is located in the Atlantic. It looks to strengthen and shift to the west and this could set us up for a blocking pattern. This could set us up for a dry week ahead as the jet stream shifts a bit north. Temperatures look to rebound on Monday with temperatures climbing by the middle of the week into the 70s area-wide.

High pressure could keep us dry and warm next week.
