A Fine Fall Weekend...

October 16, 2020 // Article by: Brad Miller

After an unsettled finish to the work week here in the Northeast, we have a quiet stretch of weather for the upcoming weekend.  And while the rainfall on Friday was much needed, it will clear out just in time for us to enjoy a nice, but very fall-like Saturday and Sunday.  The only exception will be over eastern New England early Saturday as the last of the rain and showers exits the area.  The rest of the I-95 corridor will kick off the weekend with just some clouds and breezy conditions, but a fair amount of sunshine is expected on Saturday.  Here is a look at the simulated radar for around 8 AM on Saturday.

As we head into Saturday evening, skies become clear and the wind will turn calm.  This will allow for ideal radiational cooling conditions Saturday night.  In other words, whatever heat we accumulated during the day will quickly "escape" Saturday night due to the clear, dry conditions.  In fact, this could be the coolest night for many since last spring.  And while many interior locations of the Northeast have already had their first frost, that "frost line" will be closer to the coast this time around.  Take a look at temperatures for 8 AM Sunday.

After the chilly start, Mother Nature will offer lots of sunshine for Sunday as afternoon highs push back into the 60s.  Overall, a nice weekend ahead for the middle of October.  Definitely some fine fall weather.  

So, that's it for now.  Just a quick blog today as the weather this weekend will be rather uneventful.  We'll have more on the forecast for the new work week on Monday.  Until then, have a great and safe weekend !!
