Weather Roundup: National Forecast for Oct. 22
Expect rainy and cool conditions for much of the morning as a strong low pressure system rides up the East Coast. The potential onslaught of heavy rain has forced the issuance of flood watches in parts of Maine and New Hampshire. The Rain will continue for much of the day for a large part of the Northeast and highs ill only top out in the 40s and 50s for most of the region.
A cold front and associated low pressure system will continue to bring showers from West Virginia to New Jersey for the morning commute. Kentucky to Tennessee will continue to stay dry with chilly morning temperatures. We start the day with temperatures in the 40s and 50s. The cold front will continue to affect the Central East coastal areas through the day on Wednesday bringing in rain showers for most. But partly cloudy skies from Knoxville to Pittsburgh. Highs should be in the 60s.
A cool clear morning is on-tap for the Deep South as temperatures — as far south as Jackson, Miss. — will drop into the upper 40s. Expect 50s and 60s along the Gulf Coast and in Florida. The afternoon will bring abundant sunshine and highs topping out in the highs topping out in the 60s and 70s for much of the region. The lone hold out will once again be Florida, where highs in the low 80s are much more likely from Ocala and points south.
A cool and clear morning for much of the South as skies remain mostly clear and lows drop into the low to mid-60s area wide. Partly cloudy skies are more likely in the afternoon and highs will top out in the 70s and 80s.
A plume of unseasonably warm air will continue to stream north through the morning hours, meaning lows will only bottom out in the mid to upper 50s. A few isolated showers are possible as well, throughout the day. Afternoon highs will generally top out in the 70s, but a few low 80s can’t be totally ruled out either.
High pressure moving to the east will keep much of the region clear into the afternoon. However, a front coming in from the west will bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms from Minnesota into Wisconsin tonight. Rain will continue to move east on Thursday. Morning lows will start the day in the 30s and 40s. Afternoon highs will only warm into the 50s and 60s.
Rain and snow in western Montana will gradually end this morning, but roadways will remain slick. That same wave coming from the west coast will move east, keeping a chance of rain in the Dakotas through the day. High pressure moving in behind that trof will clear skies from west to east into tonight. Low temperatures this morning will be quite chilly in the west, dropping back into the 20s and 30s. The east will see morning lows in the 40s and 50s. Afternoon highs will warm into the 40s and 50s in the west and the 60s in the east.
As expected, there will be a variety of temperatures across the Four Corners region. 40s and 50s can be expected from New Mexico, with a few pockets of 70s in southern Arizona to 30s and 40s in Utah and Colorado. There will be tons of sunshine from Utah to Arizona through the day. Southern New Mexico will see some scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs will reach the 60s in Colorado to a few pocket of 80s in Utah with even some 90s in southern Arizona. Have a great day!
The region will start off dry early this morning with lows ranging from the chilly 20s in northern Nevada to the 50s and 60s along the coast and in the south. A cold front moving in off the coast will gradually increase cloud cover and rain chances in northern California. Chances will increase on Thursday. Look for high temperatures to warm into the 60s, 70s, and 80s. A few 90s will be possible in the desert.
A big coastal low will continue to bring in disturbances for the Pacific Northwest through the next several days. So hang on to those umbrellas. The morning will start off with light to moderate showers from southern Oregon through Washington, making for a slow commute. Showers will continue to be heavy at times through the day. We start the day with temperatures in the 50s along the coast, but 30s and 40s from Klamath Falls to Sun Valley, Idaho. Showers will continue to spread inland, but the heaviest rain will continue along the coast. Highs will only make it to the upper 50s to low 60s. Travel safely!
