Monday 10/7 Forecast Discussion

Yesterday we picked up 1.34" of rain at Key Field, and saw clouds hang around for most of the day, but today couldn't have been any different. We woke up cool this morning in the low and mid 50s (even a few upper 40s up towards the Golden Triangle) and have only reached the low 70s in most spots this afternoon with plenty of sunshine. In my opinion, it has been nothing short of a perfect early fall day. Fortunately for us, the nice weather looks to continue just about all week. The cold front that brought us yesterday's rain has prompted Tornado and Severe Thunderstorm Watches and Warnings over parts of the mid-Atlantic and Northeast states today as it makes its exit into the Atlantic. As we look back to our West, cool air will continue sliding in here, and should make for the coldest night so far since the spring tonight, as we will drop into the mid and upper 40s! There are also clear conditions over just about the entire US, except for the East Coast, and a storm coming on-shore in the Pacific Northwest. We'll keep an eye on the storm in the Northwest, but it will take about 5-6 days to get here, and even then, it should only bring a small chance of a few scattered showers over the weekend. What we are looking at though, is another storm that's lined up behind this one, that could bring us some rain and thunderstorms during the middle part of next week. That's still really far out, so we'll keep an eye on it because anything could change. So for now, get out there and enjoy the great weather in store for this week!
