Saturday evening....frost possible Monday morning....

>> Saturday, October 18, 2008

We did indeed see lots of clouds today....even some sprinkled in the Triad region....due to very cold temps aloft. The clouds will erode away this evening.

A chilly night will unfold tonight with lows dropping into the upper 30s to lower 40s. Full sunshine will return for our Sunday, but it will still be cool with highs only in the low to mid 60s.

It looks like things are setting up for our first widespread frost potential Sunday night into Monday this point, I am anticipating lows in the mid 30s. more info on this as Sunday unfolds.

Quiet weather will continue for much of the week with most highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s. Another shot of cooler air will settle in for Wednesday.


Here comes the chill....

We will continue to see areas of rain today and this evening as a cold front slides south of the region. Temperatures will fall through the afternoon hours as a chillier airmass arrives.

The rain will end tonight, and dry weather resumes tomorrow. However, it will be a chilly, blustery day with highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s, lots of clouds, and a stiff north wind.....get some chili cooking!

Lows will drop down into the upper 30s to lower 40s Sunday and Monday morning, and I would not be surprised if some spots in the Piedmont saw the first frost of the season, likely on Monday morning.

Afternoon highs through next week will remain pretty comfortable....mainly in the 60s; 70s at most. Lows temps will remain in the 40s beginning Tuesday morning.


Saturn Weather

Very interesting discoveries taking place on Saturn. Giant hurricane-like structures are being seen as never before, and they are much more powerful and work differently than ours here on Earth.

Near record warmth will be the big weather story for the next few days with highs temps well up into the 80s. However, a sharp temperature turnaround will occur for the weekend. In fact, I think we have a chance at seeing the coolest high temperature recorded on October 18 in many spots Saturday....quite a flip-flop.

That will depend on a coastal area of low pressure that will likely develop and spread in clouds, some shower chances, and blustery northerly winds for Saturday. More details as the week unfolds.

In the tropics, the Caribbean is abuzz with activity, but nothing that looks to threaten the US anytime soon.

I had the chance over the weekend to head down to Mississippi State to watch my Bulldogs take on #13 Vanderbilt. Happy to report we won, and it was a good game to attend. The best part of the whole thing was that I took my oldest two daughters with me and got to spend some really quality time with them. We really had a blast, and I am so thankful to have had that opportunity.

We will enjoy pleasantly warm conditions today with highs near 80 and lots of sun.

A big upper air ridge will build over the eastern US through mid-week, and that will lead to near record highs around here Tuesday through Thursday. Highs all three days will likely reach the mid 80s.

A cold front will move through Friday and set us up for colder weather over the weekend.....probably 60s for highs and 40s for lows.

Tropics: Nana is way out in the eastern Atlantic and weakening. This system should not be a factor for the US. We are also watching an area in the Caribbean.

And a in those fall foliage pics. From what I have seen, the fall foliage is simply spectacular up in the mountains this season. Email your photos to
