October 5th, 2012 Forecast

After a few grey and humid days, there is cooler weather on the horizon.  But this weather might actually be a shock to the system, with some of the coldest weather since April of this year.  Overnight, we'll see the scattered shower activity start to move out of the region and clouds start to dissipate towards morning.  While still feeling humid, lows around the city tonight will be around 60-degrees, dipping to the mid-60's to the north and west.  Winds will be from the northwest at 5 to 10 mph.  Tomorrow, the clearing trend will continue to partly sunny skies, and a nice end to the week.  Highs shooting up to the 80's or near 80-degrees in most places ahead of a cold front moving through.  Winds will be from the west at 5 to 10 mph.

Saturday starts our nice, but clouds will be on the increase for most of the day.  Showers will start to move in towards the evening and overnight as a potent cold front approaches the area.  Highs will be in the lower to mid-70's over much of the area.  Any activities or outings you may have during the twilight hours on Saturday might experience some rain, so I'd bring an umbrella, just to be on the safe side.  Sunday, temperatures will dip into the 50's on an absolutely raw day.  Skies will be mostly cloudy with a good amount of shower activity.  Winds will be up around 10 to 15 mph as well.

Luckily, the showers will only be around for a day or so, as we clear out for Monday.  The sun does return, but temperatures remain cool, only hovering around 60-degrees.  Lows over those two days will dip into the mid- to upper 40's in many spots.  Tuesday, we return to near normal temperatures with highs in the mid-60's and lows in the lower 50's, with a great stretch of weather on hand.  Wednesday will feature highs near 70-degrees under mostly sunny skies.  Temperatures drop again for Thursday, so keep the sweater handy, but we will still see partly sunny skies.
