Pinpoint Weather: First weekend of fall looks relatively quiet, rain chances increase by mid-week

Weather Blog

Now that we’re officially into fall, the weather should routinely start to feel like fall, too – right?

Well, yes – kind of.

We’ll have a touch of humidity the next few days which will help produce areas of fog the next several mornings.

Most areas on Saturday will have temperatures climb well into the 70s with a good blend of sun and clouds and most areas will be remaining dry, but there will be a few stray sprinkles possible during the afternoon and into the early-evening both Saturday and Sunday. Most areas, though, will remain dry and whatever rain does fall is expected to be very light and very isolated.

Saturday night, the fog reenters the region – and, like last night, it could be locally-dense, so Sunday morning travel will likely be impacted.

Clouds will start to increase a bit on Sunday as well ahead of our next chance for rain, possibly coming in Monday afternoon, in the form of scattered showers.

We’ll be paying close attention to Futurecast because that may get delayed closer to Monday night and into Tuesday, which does look much more unsettled. There could also be a few claps of thunder possible Tuesday afternoon as well.

Right now, Futurecast does indicate that some showers could linger into early-Wednesday before we start to dry out on Thursday.

A few isolated showers are in the cards as we wrap up the week on Friday.

Temperatures will be seasonal through midweek with highs generally in the mid and upper 70s before we kick a cold front through the area which will help to drop those temperatures a good 10-15 degrees cooler by week’s end.

So, we’re looking for a dry weekend – get out and enjoy it, and have a pumpkin-spiced latte!
