Today will be very warm with highs possibly up to 85 in the warmest spots. This is the last chance to anyone who wants to go the beach one last time until next spring. Tomorrow will be similar to today just slightly cooler around 80 or so.
Monday night a cold front comes through leading to much cooler temps on Tuesday with temps in the upper 60s to lower 70s.
The timing of the storm is a bit different as it is expected to move a bit slower than originally expected, so Wednesday looks more dry and Friday looks wetter than originally expected.
Wednesday looks just cloudy with increasing winds and the rain looks to hold off until Wednesday night into Thursday.
This looks more like a nor’easter now with little to no tropical characteristics but there will still be tropical moisture entrained thus I still like a widespread 3-4 inches.
The storm over Texas and the storm over Florida are expected to phase and “join forces” Weds just off the Carolina coast and develop into a powerful nor’easter and move slowly just off the coast. By the way Texas is experiencing a lot of flooding which is actually a welcome sight being they have been in a severe drought since January. Some areas already saw 8 inches with still possibly 2-3 more inches to come the next few days!! Florida and the SE are also in a drought so the 5-8 inches coming their way is also a very welcome sight.
Looks like winds of 20-30 mph with guts to 40 and very heavy rainfall Thursday into most of the day Friday, then a cold front comes through Friday night and creates a cold pattern over the East Coast starting Saturday.
Looks like the second half of October into November will be cold and active
History tells us that Nor’easters in October typically point towards a very active, cold and snowy winter.
