Forecast Discussion

After a partly cloudy and warm first two-thirds of the day, a line of rain and storms arrives with a cold front this evening (5-7 PM). Given the strength of this front, as well as additional energy from a low off the Atlantic Coast, a few severe storms are possible with gusty winds and small hail. The severe threat drops off quickly after sunset, with rain continuing overnight.

While this low pressure meshes with the coastal low and stalls out, we’ll be stuck on the backside of this stormy mess. This will create a very cloudy, windy, and damp setup for Tuesday, with isolated showers and sprinkles sticking around. Wind gusts could get as high as 30-35 mph, so tie down any lose outdoor items if you can. High pressure will be moving in afterward to give us a brief quiet and sunny day on Wednesday. By Thursday, the next storm system will start its approach from the southwest.

This late week storm is the same one that’s currently impacting the Pacific Northwest, so it will still have plenty of energy and moisture behind it. Showers will start rolling in Thursday afternoon, picking up into a steady rain by Friday morning. It doesn’t appear likely that storms or severe weather will be a concern at this point, but we’re certainly going to be a fair share of rain before all is said and done. After a few lingering showers head out Saturday morning, it will clear out and remain seasonably cool through Halloween weekend.

Have a great Monday and watch for those storms later!
