Fall weather typically is benign. the mid summer heat & humidity is long gone for thunderstorm creation is nearly impossible and the jet stream isn’t powerful enough to generate powerful, all-day rainstorms. The only wild card is the tropics and we saw how that panned out last week #Joaquin #OutToSea.

Until that jet stream strengthens, we only really deal with cool fronts. A sign of fall is the frequency of these fronts that come at us. We actually had one sneak through here last evening and that will prevent a repeat of yesterdays temps (70s). Most towns today will be about 5-10 degrees cooler than today, especially at the coast but other than that we have a delightful fall day.

Tomorrow we see another cool front come at us but  you will notice this front. Not for extreme cold but rather clouds and a scattering of showers by afternoon. Thankfully, this front won’t have tropical downpours tied to it so plan on only .30" of rain (or less). Highest chance of rain is likely between  4-10pm–but not expected to rain during that entire window.

This front is zipping along and by Saturday morning it will be long gone! Sunshine for all three Holiday Weekend days with a warming trend–low 60s on Saturday into the low 70s by Monday! Fabulous for picking apples, pumpkins, cider donuts (they grow on trees, don’t they?), fall foliage, hikes and or bike rides. Enjoy!
