  • Increasing clouds tonight
  • Rain chances build back in Friday night
  • First weekend of November will have unseasonably warm temperatures

TONIGHT

Overnight lows will dip into the 40s and 50s again with clouds build in tonight. Most should stay dry, but a few models hinted at the opportunity for some drizzle to build in yet again. If so, areas that see rain will wake up to dense fog Friday morning.

FRIDAY

We end the week with a mix of sun and clouds. Temperatures will warm into the upper 60s and low 70s for most of the viewing area! Dry conditions are in store too as high pressure remains over the region.

The high pressure system won’t stay close for long though... late Friday night (near 10 PM) spotty showers make a return.

CLOUDY AND DAMP AT TIMES THIS WEEKEND

Spotty showers remain throughout the day on Saturday. Some spots will stay dry to start the weekend, but cloudy skies will hold tight thanks to an approaching front. This front will also bring breezy conditions on Saturday.

As the front heads closer to us, we can expect a few more showers on Sunday with the opportunity for some heavy pockets of rain at times. We aren’t calling for a complete washout as showers will come and go at times, but have the umbrella handy!

A few showers, mist and drizzle are possible this weekend.

The rain showers won’t impact our temperatures though! The above normal temperature trend will continue during this weekend as upper-level ridging takes place. Highs will read in the low 70s for most which is a good 5-10° above average for the region. These warmer temperatures also continue to start off next week!

Highs will continue to be warmer than normal even heading into next week.

THE TROPICS

There are two tropical systems in the Atlantic and both will NOT impact the United States. Lisa and Martin formed into hurricanes Wednesday morning. Lisa made landfall near Belize and has downgraded to a Tropical Depression. Martin is continuing to move towards the northeast away from the U.S.
