More fantastic fall weather for Tuesday, remaining mild through mid-week

Forecast

Warm most of this week, but big changes come by the weekend...

TONIGHT: Mostly Clear, Not As Chilly. Lo 42. Winds: Light.

TUESDAY: Mostly Sunny, Pleasant. Hi 68. Winds: W/WSW 5-10 mph.

WEDNESDAY: AM Clouds, Stray Light Showers. PM Clearing and Mild. Hi 65.

A tremendous weekend sees the mild weather now bleed over into the work week. Today had highs near 70°! Tonight will not be as cool as milder air hangs in the region through Thursday. Low temperatures range from the upper 30s to low 40s.

Tuesday should be just as nice, if not a little milder than today! High temperatures should creep toward 70° for Tuesday afternoon.

Our next front will roll through as we head into Wednesday morning. There can be a shower or two around just after sunrise, but most will escape rain-free. Either way, skies will begin to clear by the afternoon with highs still in the 60s. Thursday will be dry but clouds will be on the increase as the next more potent front approaches from the west.

This front will deliver our best shot for a steady rain this week. Models are finally coming into agreement when it comes to timing, and it does appear Friday morning will be the wettest, with drying conditions for the afternoon. On average, rainfall of a half inch to three quarters of an inch is possible. Behind the front, much cooler air settles in for the weekend with highs in the low to mid 50s and overnight lows dropping to near 40. A secondary disturbance could swing through Saturday night, bringing a few additional light showers and perhaps even a few wet flakes of snow over our northern tier areas. Enjoy the warm up this week while you can! Next week will be very different.
