After a rather dreary weekend, save for some peeks of sun late yesterday, this week should bring a reprieve from the rainfall, but clouds will persist from time to time too. Expect some dense fog early this morning that may take a while to burn off. Once it does, however, some sunshine will peek through this afternoon with highs in the lower 70s. Tonight will be quiet and calm with lows in the mid 50s…great fall sleeping weather! A ridge of high pressure to the north of PA will pull in some clouds for Tuesday thanks to easterly flow coming in from the Atlantic. There could still be some peeks of sun tomorrow, but they just may be fewer and far between than today. Wednesday and Thursday look pleasant with a mix of clouds and sun and highs continuing right around 70 degrees. By Friday, Hurricane Matthew will begin to creep northward along the east coast and could have an impact on the local weather by next weekend.
There is no certainty about Matthew’s track at this time and we will not really know much until Matthew leaves the Caribbean. Some computer models have the storm hugging the east coast and moving up into the Mid-Atlantic next weekend with some heavy rain. Other computer models have the storm lingering near the Carolinas and pushing away from the U.S. early next week. With so many solutions and lots of variables, this will be an evolving forecast. We will track it for you over the coming days. Stay tuned.
