Near record highs today...

>> Monday, October 11, 2010

We had a nice, albeit very warm weekend across the region with highs in the 80s from the Piedmont to the coast.

Today will again be quite warm, and many record highs around the region could fall. Highs in the Piedmont will top out in the mid to upper 80s under a sunny sky. Highs tomorrow will be much the same with a lot of sunshine still featured.

Weather changes...

Some big weather changes will occur in time for the second half of the week. One small piece of energy could bring a few showers later Wednesday, but a much more potent system will bring some showers Thursday. Due to clouds and showers, highs Thursday might be held into the 60s in many locations.

A significantly colder airmass will blow in here Thursday night into Friday. Despite a sunny sky, highs Friday and Saturday will likely be in the 60s. Lows will drop well down into the 40s for the upcoming weekend. The weekend also looks like a sunny one, so another great October weekend (this time a much cooler one) is on tap.

Down the road...

I feel a pretty good shot of cold air is likely for much of the eastern US sometime during the last 7-8 days of October.


We are watching a disturbance in the Caribbean Sea for signs of development.


The family and I went up to the mountains Saturday. It was a beautiful day with highs in the low to mid 70s and not a cloud in the sky. As of Saturday, the trees below 3k feet or so were still mostly green. It seems it is the peak of the season for elevations between about 4k and 5500'....many trees above that elevation were already finished for the season.

I forgot to bring my camera in with me to upload a few pics we snapped....will definitely try to do that by tomorrow.
