Big Temperature Swing Coming to the East Coast

Record-setting warm temperatures were felt on Friday with some cities reaching deep into the 80’s and even creeping into the lower 90’s briefly. It didn’t exactly feel like the 15th day of October!

A pretty strong cold front pushing across the eastern United States will cool us off into the weekend. Temperatures ahead of the front are 10-15 degrees *above* average while behind the front they’re 5-10 degrees *below* average.

Changes on the Way …

Areas along the I-95 corridor will have another warm day Saturday before the front brings the cooler air to end the weekend. Notice how much cooler it is behind the front, west of the Appalachians!

Before the cold front fully passes, expect another afternoon of warm weather. There are more potential record highs to be broken or tied today across the far eastern United States.

A strong cold front will put an end to the record warmth and drop in cooler air this weekend.  Some cities could fall over 15 degrees in forecast high temperatures from one day to the next.

Many cities will experience their cooler of the two weekend days Sunday. Here are some select city forecasts to show you the drop in high temperatures.

By Sunday the cooler air will be draining in everywhere east of the Mississippi. Instead of 5-10° above average, temperatures will be running several degrees below average. Sweater weather, anyone?!
