Tuesday didn’t end up being too bad, except a few showers that came around. What can we expect today? Welcome to your Wednesday morning forecast for October 24, 2012.
TODAY-THURSDAY: Highs should be near 80 degrees today under sunny skies. This is very near the record high temperature of 81 set back in 1920 and I think there’s a possibility we break it. Even Thursday looks pretty good with sunny skies and highs close to 80. Thursday’s record high is 82 set in 1963…and we might even make a run at THAT one.
FRIDAY-SATURDAY: This forecast is still tough to pin down, because each model run changes. At this point, I’m hesitating to put rain into the daytime forecast Friday…but in the end I think I will need to, based on the models showing some instability around here. Any rain chance would be in the afternoon I believe. Highs will be around 70 Friday. Saturday the bottom really begins to fall out, as we’ll struggle to reach 60 with those showers around. Lows through the period remain in the 50’s.
SUNDAY-TUESDAY: At this point, Sunday through Tuesday will be HIGHLY dependent on what Sandy does out in the Atlantic. For right now, I think the front clears us but stalls to our east, and that much of the effects will be east of us, but I would not be surprised if we have to add in precipitation chances in later forecasts. This thing is up in the air like a balloon filled with helium. Stay tuned… And on that note, I will be doing a special separate and detailed discussion later today about what may happen with Sandy after this weekend’s storm moves off to our east. Anyone with interests on the east coast needs to read that when I release it around 3:00 PM today. (I want to wait for the 12Z Euro to be released.)
SOCIAL MEDIA: Follow along as I look at our skies and occasionally the streets:
NEXT UPDATE: Other than the aforementioned special discussion, the next update will be either tonight or tomorrow. Until then, take care!
