Weather - Big Bubble, No Trouble!


Big Bubble - No Trouble!

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

A large region of strong high pressure extends over the eastern United States, giving clear skies underneath it and fine fall weather for today. As this system slips off the east coast, it will leave in its wake a long southerly fetch of warm air. This air will rise up over the colder air mass to the North, and we will get clouds developing, bringing a possibility of light rain Wednesday night and Thursday morning. An abrupt change of winds to the North will herald colder weather for the latter part of the week.

Today: A chilly start but continued sunny weather with light westerly winds. A fine autumn day. High 71F (22C).

Tonight: Winds becoming southwesterly. Some high clouds because of warm air overrunning will keep temperatures up a bit. Low 54F (12C).

Wednesday: Becoming cloudy. Warm southwest breeze. A chance of some light rain toward night. High 69F (21C). Low 56F (13C).

Thursday: Chance of light rain in the morning. Clearing toward day's end. Cooler, northerly winds. High 72F (22C). Low 45F (7C).
