October 15: An Autumnal Week Ahead

As this evening’s showers depart, significantly cooler air will come crashing into the Midstate, which means it will actually FEEL like fall…temporarily, at least.

The HRRR model’s radar simulation shows the rain moving off the Cumberland Plateau around midnight:

Temperatures tonight will drop to the mid to upper 40s:

We’ll only warm up to the mid 60s on Monday despite abundant sunshine:

Strong northerly winds will keep the cool air locked in place Monday night and Tuesday, with lows in the low to mid 40s and highs on Tuesday only in the upper 60s to around 70°:

A gradual warming trend kicks in Wednesday through next weekend, with temperatures back to around 80° by Friday, Saturday and Sunday:

Our next hint of a rain chance doesn’t arrive until Sunday at the earliest.  Enjoy the nice weather this week!
