October 20th, 2012 Forecast

After a few rain showers pass through the area last night and during the day Friday, we see a bulk of that moisture moved off to the north and east and we're left with a few isolated pockets here and there.  We'll see them persist over night, but the impact on any football games tonight should be minimal, if at all.  Towards midnight, skies will gradually start to clear with lows in the metro and to the north and west in the mid-50s.  As you head south and east, temperatures could bottom out in the upper 50s.  The clearing trend continues into tomorrow leaving us with a great weekend.  Skies will turn mostly sunny with highs in the mid- to upper 60's and a dry wind from the west at 5 to 10 mph.

What else is there to say about this weather except how great of a stretch it will turn out to be?  Sunday looks like the "coolest" of the extended forecast, with highs around where we should be, in the mid-60's and all under mostly sunny skies.  Temperatures bump back into the 70's on Monday and will stay there for the rest of the week.  Tuesday, still sunny and pleasant as high pressure dominates over the region.  Wednesday temperatures remaining in the lower 70's and still feeling nice outside.  A great time to open the windows, if they aren't already, and let the crisp fall air in.  Thursday, we could see a few more clouds in the sky, but still a very nice day.  Friday will start out nice, but some model runs indicate an increased chance of rain late on Friday, but we still have another week to hash that out.
