The record for Oct. 2 is 89 degrees, set back in 1986. We will be creeping very close to that as we head into the afternoon with highs forecast in the mid-80s.
Good morning and happy October! Tuesday certainly won’t feel like a typical October day as highs soar into the low 80s.
The theme continues: warm, muggy and unsettled as the upper-level pattern does not change very much.
Highs Tuesday should top out in the low/mid 60s while a cool air mass is still in place.
We have some dry weather Friday for the most part, and a wind out of the southwest will allow for a warmer afternoon.
There was a lull in activity earlier this morning as a dry slot of air wrapped its way into the circulation of the area of the pesky low pressure system over the mid-Atlantic.
Clouds associated with a coastal area of low pressure will continue to filter across the region Tuesday as an easterly component to our wind continues to kick in some Atlantic moisture.
We had another warm one Wednesday with some areas reaching record breaking temperatures!
Another unseasonably warm and gorgeous day is in store for us on Wednesday.
Our average high is now up to 62 degrees. We not only went above average Monday, but soared through the 70s – topping out at 77 degrees.
We’re going to be experiencing some of the season’s warmest weather to date this week, but there are also some pretty strong signals that indicate it will be much cooler around here by Friday, too.
Sunshine dominated both days, while highs jumped from 54 degrees Saturday to 68 degrees Sunday.
