Saturday begins cold and very frosty with temperatures ranging in the mid to upper 20s across the valley and upper 20s to low 30s in the higher elevations. High pressure remains overhead, so expect a sunny, quiet day with highs in the low 60s-perfect for fall activities! We get back to freezing Saturday night, then warm up a lot more Sunday with highs nearing 70.
We shift into a warmer weather pattern beginning Sunday and lasting through mid-week. High pressure moves offshore Sunday and we turn breezy with a southwest wind warming us up and we’re still sunny. A cold front to our north brings a chance for showers Monday morning, but we remain warm with highs in the 70s.
Some record high temps may be challenged Tuesday and Wednesday with an upper level ridge in place along with continued southwesterly wind flow. Many will get to upper 70s and even near 80 if we can get enough sun. Another cold front moves through late Wednesday and stalls to our southeast, then low pressure looks to move toward New England with a good rain potential to end the week. We also look to turn cooler with this system.
