After a raw cool rainy Thursday , a very nice, warm and quiet weekend is on the way as a ridge builds over the east in response to the MJO changing phases, we are entering another period of a pattern relaxation like we had early this month, this will mean dominantly near to above normal temperatures over the next 5-8 days.
With a trough over the west , a zonal pattern is taking hold of much of the nation with warm Pacific air, winds will turn more west southwesterly this weekend with highs Saturday mostly in the mid 70s to low 80s and upper 70s to mid 80s Sunday, lows will be in the low to mid 50s interior, mid 50s to low 60s elsewhere with clear skies just some clouds possible in the afternoons
Monday the warm conditions continue with a bit more humidity and highs in the mid 70s to low 80s, a weak cold front will transport more seasonably cool air by Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the mid 60s to low 70s and lows in the 40s to low 50s
Temperature by Thursday will depend on the track of a coastal low, if it tracks far enough west to bring clouds and rain highs will remain near seasonal levels however if it passes east of the area a warming trend will begin once again
Friday as a strong storm goes into the Midwest, a strong front will begin to move east and winds will turn southwest will it likely turning warm and humid again Friday and Saturday, this front may bring heavy rain later next weekend , this cold front will also bring the trough back into the east by Sunday with temperatures returning to below average temperatures, this cold front will be the factor that breaks down the pattern relaxation, I believe setting shop for a relatively cool and stormy October
