Forecast: Sunny And Unseasonably Warm; Rain Coming Thursday

A great day of weather is on tap Wednesday with a blend of clouds an sunshine and mild air. A flow of air from the southwest will help boost temperatures above seasonal averages.

We won’t see any record warmth, however. The record for Nov. 5 was set 20 years ago, when temperatures reached a very warm 79 degress. It's still a great day to get outside and enjoy the tranquil weather as cooler weather is on its way again.

Thursday will start cloudy, though I expect commuters will make it through the morning without any wetness. As a cold front crosses the region, a storm will develop on the front and pass through the region overnight Thursday. This system will then move northeast and beyond our area.

The rain will end on Friday morning. It appears the Thursday evening commute will be quite wet and with the early darkness it will likely be a slower ride home than the normally slow ride.

Friday morning could see a few showers, but the trend will be for the rain to end and for there to be just cloudy skies most of the day. It’s going to be cooler with all the clouds and more of a Canadian air mass in place.

The weekend is looking challenging for forecasters. Saturday looks to be sunny and cool with highs in the mid 40s during the afternoon. If you are headed to a local athletic event be sure to dress warmly.

Sunday sees a bit of sun in the morning, but clouds will overtake the skies and depending on the evolution of a new storm, we could be looking at more rain later in the day. I’ll have nore on this tomorrow. There’s also a possibility of no precipitation at all.

Wednesday: Mild with a blend of clouds and sunshine. Breezy with a high in the mid 60s.

Wednesday night: Mostly cloudy and mild lows in the mid 40s.

Thursday: Cloudy early, then rain overspreading the area late in the morning. Highs in the mid 50s.

Friday: Early showers, then cloudy. Some late breaks possible. Highs in the upper 40s to lower 50s.

Saturday: Sunny and chilly. Highs in the mid 40s.

Sunday: Lots of clouds with a chance of afternoon showers. Highs around 50.
