Northeast

Overnight showers and a few embedded thundershowers clear out from west-to-east on Tuesday, with pleasant weather expected across the region for the rest of the week. Temperatures will be in the upper 60s and into the lower 70s throughout most of the region for the rest of the week, with perhaps a shower in extreme northern New England on Thursday, but otherwise it’ll be sunny. Enjoy the great weather here (once you get past Tuesday)!

East Central

A weak cold front slides through the region on Tuesday, perhaps kicking up a shower or storm in the Appalachians, but otherwise it’ll mostly bring a reinforcing shot of cooler, fall-like air for many. Most of the area looks dry through the end of the week, with the exception of North Carolina, where stormier weather on Tuesday and Wednesday in particular looks to be in the offing. Temperatures in the 70s and 80s hang tough for much of the week.

Southeast

A frontal boundary continues to keep parts of Alabama, South Carolina and Georgia stormy for Tuesday, but by Wednesday things mostly clear out with the exception of Florida. South Carolina could still see some storms on Wednesday, but by mid-week most of the region will enjoy cooler temperatures (70s and 80s) and sunny skies – just in time for this weekend’s college football action!
