Today’s Weather Synopsis…
A warm front will move across the region this morning bringing periods of steady rainfall across northern areas and scattered showers elsewhere. The warm front and associated lift will continue to move north of the region into midday as area of low pressure tracks north of the region. Any steady rain will taper to scattered showers with warmer temperatures as the region briefly goes into the warm sector. A cold front will then quickly approach into the afternoon with a few more scattered showers and possibly an isolated thunderstorm with a downpour and/or some gusty winds if any breaks in the cloud cover are able to develop, particularly in southern areas. The chance for showers will then end by evening as the front advances east of the region with clouds decreasing after midnight.

Conditions will dry out and cooler temperatures will arrive in the wake of the front on Saturday with sunshine returning as high pressure builds back in. Some frost is possible in outlying areas on Saturday night as the high crests over the region and temperatures fall into the 30’s. Dry weather will continue into Sunday as the high slides south of the region and another warm front brings milder temperatures into Columbus Day. Another fast-moving front arrives on Tuesday with a few scattered showers and cooler temperatures returning into the middle of next week.
