Remnants of Ian keep forecast sunny and dry (10/1/22)
As the remnants of Ian dissipate along the East Coast, a strong high pressure system has been stationary over the central U.S. for the better part of this past week. It still will keep dry and mild conditions for us heading through the end of the weekend into next week. Rain chances will be few and far between based on model guidance for now. Being on the eastern side of the high pressure system, winds will stay out of the north and northeast for the time being as well.
As you plan your Sunday afternoon, temperatures will start on the cooler side in the morning right around the lower 40s. This will be a warmer start to the day than Saturday’s lows, where some spots saw temperatures as cold as the lower 30s but above freezing.
Daytime highs will end up in the upper 70s for most, with sunny skies once more. Another great chance to take advantage of any fall festivities or family plans outside.
The forecast for the next seven days will remain dry for now, with temperatures around normal through the beginning of the week. No drastic changes to high temperatures either, but warmer temperatures around the 80s can be expected by Wednesday before a slight cool down into next weekend. Lows are usually in the lower 50s to start October, but for the next week we will likely start each day a bit cooler than normal.
