Crisp Fall Evening

The story for tonight is clear skies, cool temperatures, and dry weather. Fall weather arrived exactly on cue, as the official beginning of fall was yesterday at 3:21 PM. Temperatures will dip into the 30s in a few locations tonight and Friday night. A gradual trend to warmer weather begins this weekend. Dry weather holds at least until Tuesday night (maybe beyond that).

Forecast Discussion

A front moved through late Wednesday afternoon and is slowly exiting Eastern NC. Cool Canadian high pressure centered in the Great Plains is moving east. This sets the stage for clear skies and dry weather tonight. We'll keep a NW breeze through Friday morning. We'll need a sweater or jacket today and Friday.

A dry front moves through late Saturday without any real effect. Gradual warming begins this weekend and continues into next week.

Another front arrives from the northwest Tuesday night. We have an ever-so-slight chance of a light shower Tuesday night and Wednesday. Other than some cloudiness, this front too has little noticeable effect.

The remnants of former tropical storms Odette, Peter, and Rose are out in the Atlantic and inconsequential to weather in the U. S. However, a tropical depressing farther southeast will become Tropical Storm Sam in the next day or two. It will probably become a major hurricane as it moves WNW and has potential for the East Coast in 12-14 days.
