Low pressure to slide south of region with increasing clouds and seasonably cool conditions


Today’s Weather Synopsis…

It will remain dry across the region today as high pressure passes over the area, but clouds will increase as an upper level disturbance drops southwest out of the Great Lakes. Halloween evening looks to remain dry for fairly decent trick-or-treating weather, albeit a bit chilly, but nothing out of the ordinary for late October.

Low pressure will then re-organize off the mid-Atlantic coast into Saturday and head northeast, allowing a cool and brisk northerly flow to settle into the region. At this time, the storm looks to track too far offshore to have a significant impact on the region, but will continue to be monitored and a few scattered rain and/or snow showers are possible. Very windy and cold conditions will remain in place with scattered flurries in spots to end the weekend.
