Tuesday brought a briefly warmer afternoon to the area with upper 70s to lower 80s under sunny skies. Wednesday will take a step back on the temperatures as a reinforcing shot of cooler temperatures courtesy of a backdoor cold front slides by around sunrise.
This is a direct result of the swirling area of low pressure over the Great Lakes dropping to the south over the Ohio River Valley for the next few days. It will bring this surge of autumn cool, Canadian air with it. Despite full sunshine and only a few widely scattered cumulus clouds possibly in the mix, temperatures will likely stay in the 60s for most areas.
Wednesday night will drop into the mid 40s for a true autumn chill to the air!
Thursday and Friday look amazing with lower 70s, low humidity and plenty of sun to enjoy. This is no doubt one amazing week of weather for our area!
Keep in mind, if you’re heading east of the Mississippi over the coming days, you better plan on considerable cloudiness and a daily rain chance. It will be a very unsettled stretch of days for the eastern half of the country with this cutoff swirling area of low pressure.
