It's all about the temperatures this week with beautiful fall conditions. Temperatures for the first time this season usually average below 80 degrees for high temperatures. Days are getting shorter as well, so even with sunshine today our temperatures will reach mid to upper 70s. High pressure over the Ohio Valley will keep it calm in the Mid-Atlantic.
- This Afternoon
A weak cold front over the Great Lakes will dip into our region early Thursday morning. However, it looks just like a shift in the wind with a dry passage as little moisture is available to get any showers goings. Winds become easterly on Friday which would bring in more cloud cover and cooler temperatures. Models are now hinting that the wedge may not be as strong on Friday, so if winds vary a bit from the east, it will mean more sunshine and mid to upper 70s. By the weekend, we will warm into the 80s.

This photo shows a partial 22 degree solar halo and its reflection as observed at Pego Do Altar, Portugal. In order for halos to form most of the hexagonal ice crystals that compose the cirrostratus clouds seen in this sky must be similarly oriented. Sunlight enters one of the columnar-shaped crystal’s side faces and exits at a 22 degree angle through an alternate face.
