High pressure will move in briefly helping to clear out skies this afternoon and allow for one nice and dry day. It is a little depressing, but today will really be the nicest of the work week. It will be a very typical end to September with temperatures rising into the mid 60s and sunshine. A nice day, but hard to compare with the weekend when we were really spoiled.
It is almost hard to believe that tomorrow is the official start to October! September started off very wet and unseasonably cool, and it really looks like the next month will be similar. Not quite as much rain in the forecast (in terms of total rainfall) but it will be soggy at times for the first couple of days. Some of the rain may arrive while it is still technically September with some showers expected to develop and arrive overnight. Areas to the south more likely to see predawn rain showers.
This is all associated with a front moving across the middle of the country and approaching from the west. This will provide us with some great weather to catch a movie, read a book or just spend some time indoors Wednesday. It will be cool, cloudy and wet. The rain is expected to total only about half an inch at most, but it will still be annoying for those with outside plans or work.
By Thursday, there is still a chance for rain, but it will be much less than tomorrow. It does appear that Thursday warms up (although temporarily) into the upper 60s. This would be our sole above average day of the week as even cooler air is expected Friday and Saturday. Another front is forecast to move in Friday with a few showers possible keeping highs settled into the 50s.
The weekend weather setup is mostly dry, but very cool with below average temperatures.. in the 50s. A few showers may be in the area Sunday, but little rain is forecast at this time.
