Yet another cloudy and chilly day. Low pressure associated with the now-departed Sandy is keeping skies overcast and unsettled. A few sprinkles and patches of rain have developed and will continue tonight. Early tomorrow morning, when temperatures drop through the 30s, it is not out of the question there could be a few flurries mixing with the sprinkles. Otherwise, we are forecasting another mainly cloudy and chilly day.

Over the weekend, an area of high pressure will take control of the weather pattern. This will not give us clear skies but it will produce more sunshine than we have seen for a while. The partly cloudy and dry weather will continue through Tuesday, Election Day. Temperatures will continue to be somewhat below average. A couple computer models are suggesting an area of low pressure may develop along the mid-Atlantic coast by the middle of next week. While any coastal system could produce rain and gusty winds…there are NO INDICATIONS this will be a significant storm system. In fact, only one model brings it to the coast. Based on what I see, the better chances are this system…if it develops…will stay over the ocean. Of course we will watch all of this very closely….it’s what we do.
