Good morning everyone!
Skies have become cloudy early on this Monday morning and temperatures are quite mild for this time of year with readings ranging from the upper 60s in Clifton down to the upper 50s further inland, winds are light northerly.
A cold front has moved to our south and today will be cooler with an onshore flow. Skies should stay cloudy with some periods of drizzle. Temperatures will rise little from our present readings with highs near 70.
The front will return as a warm front by Tuesday morning and it will once again become unseasonably warm and humid both Tuesday and Wednesday but we should remain dry.
Rain some of it possibly heavy Thursday as a front approaches our area along with some possible moisture from the reminits of Tropical Storm Michael. Michael is expected to come ashore near the Florida panhandle as a Category 2 hurricane on Wednesday and then move off the Virginia coast and out to sea.
Finally some cool fall weather is expected Friday through at least the weekend. Highs will be only near 60 with overnight lows in the 40s.
