After a split weekend with a damp, wet Saturday and bright, cool Sunday, the weather will once again go downhill for Monday. A cold front, moving in from the west, will bring increasingly cloudy skies and a few showers, especially this afternoon and evening. There could be some downpours as the front moves out into the Atlantic. It will be mild today with temperatures getting into the 60s.
The rest of the work week looks dry and seasonably cool with the exception of Thursday when it will actually be quite a bit below average. The range of temperatures this time of year is generally from the upper 50s to the mid-60s.
Last week I mentioned there was going to be a significant change in the weather pattern and that change has arrived. The first couple of weeks of the month were above average, but I expect the second half of the month to be at or below average. The month may still end up warmer than normal but it won't be like last year, which was the second warmest October on record.
A cold front will move through on Wednesday night and usher in a quick shot of very cold air from Canada. The term very cold in October is different than it would be in January. Temperatures will struggle to get out of the 40s on Thursday, which is more typical for early December.
