Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, October 4, 2022 at 5:31PM

Clear Sailing

Ian's remnant is still hanging out off the DelMarVa Peninsula. We are in a cool NW flow between Ian and high pressure centered in the southern Great Lakes. Skies cleared today with temperatures still 6-7 degrees below seasonal averages. Wednesday and Thursday bring a warming trend back up to average temperatures. A dry front moves through Friday putting us back into cool air this weekend. There's no rain in sight.

Forecast Discussion

The forecast is very easy for the foreseeable future... The sequence is cool, milder, cooler, milder and dry as far as the eye can see.

Ian's remnant low is still kicking up the surf off along the DelMarVa. It will finally exit to the east Thursday. High centered in the southern Great Lakes is moving slowly to the southeast. We had a cooler than average Tuesday, then a gradual warming trend gets up back to seasonal norms Thursday.

A dry front moves through Friday (technically a sequence of two fronts). Cooler air arrives Friday night and lingers through the weekend. While we have had isolated valley frost already (including this morning), Sunday morning may bring our first widespread frost.

As that next Canadian high moves southeast, we will have a more pronounced warming trend Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.
