Pinpoint Weather: Drying out and cooling down

Weather Blog

Quiet pattern ahead for the next several days as we kick off Autumn 2021 on a cool note.  Rainfall amounts were very impressive over the past few days and it will take a few days for the waters to completely recede, but this dry pattern will help.

Here are some of the totals from our recent rains over the past couple of days.

Expect to see mostly sunny skies for the next few days as the large, lumbering low over the eastern Great Lakes throws cooler and drier air our way. The cold front that moved through Wednesday is being followed by a persistent northwest flow of air. The temperature readings over the next few days will be in the 70s for highs and in the 40s for overnight lows. Some locations in the high country will be in the upper 30s. 

High pressure moves in and the skies will stay clear through the weekend. There is a chance for us to see a few clouds from time to time but the overall pattern going to be quite pleasant. Join me at New Freedom Farm this weekend in Buchanan for Freedom Fest. A cool festival with crafts, venders, kettle corn, raffles and great music from local bands.

Heading into fall we have to now start thinking about our leaf peeping forecast and the Frost and Freeze scenario over the next few days.

As for the tropics, Sam has formed in the Atlantic and may become a Major Hurricane over the weekend. Currently not forecast to impact the US, but this feature is way to far out in the Atlantic to commit to that statement.

Stay safe,

Chief Meteorologist.
