The warming trend continues today as the mercury in the thermometer will rise into the 80s and repeat that process on Thursday and Friday.
Look for temperatures to approach record levels Thursday with highs in the middle 80s and be even warmer on Friday. The records for the 14th of October are a bit lower so they are in a bit more jeopardy, but the 15th of October records are closer to the 90s so much less of a chance that we will re-write the books on Friday.
Don’t get too used to the warm summer feel to the Commonwealth, a cold front is expected to arrive early Saturday from the west and cool the region down significantly. This front will be relatively dry, so the best chance for rain will be over the mountains. The rest of the region will see a spritz or sprinkle, but nothing that would be considered a soaking. All areas will notice some brisk NW winds after the front moves through followed by or accompanied by the cooler pattern. Leave will be blowing around Saturday so you may want to wait until Sunday before getting out the rake.
Sunday will be cool and dry with a decent breeze. This pattern is expected to linger into the workweek and our region will be looking at temps in the 60s for highs on Sunday then low 70s the rest of the week. Overnight lows will only be in the 40s starting Sunday.
