The cold front moved through the area on schedule today. The wet and gloomy morning transformed into a beautiful, but chilly, autumn afternoon. High pressure will continue to build into the mid-Atlantic for the next several days. This will produce partly to mostly sunny skies during the day and mostly clear skies at night. Temperatures will remain below average for the next 5 to 7 days and perhaps even longer.
Dry weather is forecast until later Sunday when we MAY come under the influence of a developing coastal system. Computer models have been consistently developing a storm system in the Monday/Tuesday time frame and then moving it up the Eastern Seaboard. Since the system will not develop for several more days, all we can say for now is that chances for rain will increase on Sunday and Monday. It is too soon to tell how strong this system will be and exactly where it will go. Therefore, it is also too early to provide any details of how this potential storm could affect our area and other parts of the east coast. We will keep you well informed.
