Tuesday 10/8 Forecast Discussion

It has been another absolutely beautiful day across not only the Twin States, but just about the entire Southeast. We started off pretty chilly in the upper 40s and low 50s, and warmed to the mid 70s in most spots this afternoon under bright, blue skies. As we go over the next few days, that pattern will (thankfully) not change much. We look to stay dry, with some passing clouds each day. As ridging builds in from the West, we'll also see a slow warm-up, with highs topping out in the upper 70s tomorrow, and then the low 80s for the rest of the week. The remnants of Karen are making their way up the East Coast and bringing the mid-Atlantic states some heavy rain today, and that will continue up to the Northeast over the next few days. A storm system still making its way on-shore in the Pacific Northwest looks to dive down into the heartland of the country by Friday, bringing them the possibility for some severe storms. As that system lifts back towards the Great Lakes, it could bring a few scattered showers in here on Sunday and Monday, but I do think that most of us will remain dry for the next 7 days. However, a second storm system that should come ashore over Oregon and Washington after this one should be able to drop a front through here during the middle part of next week, and that's what we'll be watching for our next chance of mention-able showers and thunderstorms. Just like I said yesterday, get out there and enjoy this beautiful weather!
