October 4th, 2013 Forecast

While September was generally cool and dry, we're starting the month of October off as if it was the middle of August.  Tonight, we'll see partly cloudy skies with temperatures fairly mild, into the upper 50's towards the north and west, up to the mid-60's here in the city and to the south and east.  Winds will be from the southwest at 5 to 10 mph.  Tomorrow, a change to the past nearly two weeks... some precipitation!  Finally, something for forecast!  Partly sunny and warm for most of the day with the chance for an isolates thunderstorm, especially to the north and west.  Temperatures in the lower to mid-80's throughout the region.  Winds will be calm for the first part of the day, then picking up to 5 to 10 mph from the southwest.

Another dry weekend and still unseasonably warm on tap.  Saturday, more hazy sunshine with the chance of more afternoon showers and thunderstorms.  Temperatures basically throughout the weekend will be in the lower 80's for highs and lower to mid-60's for lows.  Sunday, more sunshine and a great day to get out of the house ahead of the next workweek.  Things start to change on Monday, with increasing clouds and showers off and on throughout the day.  Highs drop into the upper 70's and lows near 60-degrees.

Monday night into Tuesday, we could see the effects of Karen, but it is still too far out to determine.  Either way, we are looking at precipitation from an incoming cold front for the first part of the workweek anyway.  By Wednesday, we'll see clearing skies and lower temperatures, with highs back near normal, around the lower 70's and lows in the upper 50's.  By Thursday, we're setting up a great precursor to the weekend with mostly sunny skies and highs in the lower 70's.
