Light Showers, Cooler
A rather quiet cold front settles to our south today. With the front comes a few light showers, mainly this afternoon and evening. After today, it's all sunshine for the rest of the work week. Cooler air arrives in step-wise fashion and a notable northwest wind tomorrow underscores the fact that it really is mid October. Furthering that point, the first frost of the season is possible by Friday morning, perhaps even Thursday morning in sheltered valleys.

The next seven days are mainly on course for this time of the year. We'll contend with two frontal passages that are accompanied by light rainfall. The first is today, the other is Saturday. The day after each frontal passage is followed by a blustery northwest wind, ie- Wednesday and Sunday.
Tomorrow through Friday are bright and sunny as high pressure builds from the north. It will be cold enough both Thursday and Friday mornings for the first frost of the season, but there will be too much wind Thursday morning except in the most sheltered valley locations.
After Saturday's front and light showers high pressure returns to start next week. This round is colder, and the entire region stands a good chance of frost by Monday morning.
