10/10 Ryan’s “Fall’s Here” Wednesday Night Forecast

All eyes are understandably on Hurricane Michael today, but locally the main headline is “fall’s here!” Michael moved to the East of us, due in part to the trough associated with the cold front pushing into the area.

THIS MEANS ALL THE TROPICAL AIR (WARM/MOIST) WILL MOVE OUT, AND A CONTINENTAL AIR MASS (COOL/DRY) BEGINS MOVING IN AS EARLY AS TONIGHT.

As the skies clear this evening, radiational cooling and the leading edge of the cold air will help our overnight low fall into the 60s for the first time since Spring. This cooling only intensifies as we head into the weekend with inland areas even dropping into the 50s at night. Afternoon highs fall as well, down into the upper 70s by Friday but quickly begin to moderate. Don’t expect the summer like conditions to return though, because another reinforcing front will move through as we start next week, bringing our temperatures out of the 80s again by Wednesday.
