October Wind

It is a chilly and breezy day as we are left in the wake of this season's first Nor'easter spinning up the East Coast. Daytime temperatures will run about 15 degrees below normal for this time in October. Improvements begin slowly tomorrow, not quite as windy, more sunshine, and a few steps warmer. Even better news...the weather is dialed in through the weekend as it will be the driest stretch of days we've seen in quite a while!

The RaysWeather.Com 2014-2015 Winter Fearless Forecast is now available, brought to you by Chuck Eyler Nationwide Agency. Snow-lovers will be excited.

Forecast Discussion

A developing Nor'easter hugs the Mid-Atlantic and New England coastline through the end of the work-week. The southern Appalachians are left in the backwash of chilly, cloudy, and breezy conditions until early Thursday. Given we are in a transition month and October weather can be a little "flaky" it really isn't that bad (we've already seen worse).

High pressure nudges south from the Great Lakes tomorrow afternoon as the Nor'easter moves further away. Sunshine returns in the afternoon and marks the beginning of a long-lived stretch of very nice weather. Temperatures rebound to seasonal levels Friday holding at least through early next week.

There are two upper level disturbances that pass by with little consequence (increased clouds) Friday and Saturday nights. They are hardly worth mentioning but that's all there is to write home about. Bottom line, it doesn't get much better this time of the year! Enjoy!
