Pleasant, fall weather is here
Seasonable temperatures continue into the weekend
FALL WEATHER CONTINUES
The weather has turned much cooler and very comfortable as the Canadian air arrived behind the strong cold front. Skies will continue to remain clear through Friday thanks to high pressure.
Temperatures tonight will be chilly with lows falling mostly into the 40s. There may even be some 30s in elevated valleys! Great firepit weather.
More pleasant weather is on the way Friday. Afternoon highs will reach into the 70s in many areas east of the Blue Ridge. In the mountains, afternoon highs will struggle to even hit the mid 60s.
If you like the fall air, you’re in luck. We anticipate very few changes as we enter the weekend. The only difference may be a few more occasional clouds along with a slight uptick in overnight temperatures.
Even then, our daytime highs will be very close to late-September averages, reaching the mid 70s.
We continue to watch an active tropical map of potential storm development. Tropical Storm Sam has developed deep in the Atlantic. Sam is expected to become a major hurricane and take its time traveling over the next week. At this time, it is too soon to say where it is heading, but it is one to watch!
The latest outlook from the National Hurricane Center is below.
