10/21 – Brittany’s “Gorgeous Weekend Ahead” Friday Night Forecast

The clear and cool conditions will continue this weekend with morning lows in the 50s and 60s and high temperatures in the low 80s. Low-level moisture is returning as winds have shifted to southerly due to the surface high propagating eastward over the last day. This has brought dewpoint temperatures back into the mid 50s and a gradual increase into the 60s is expected over the weekend prior to another frontal passage. This could allow for some patchy fog in lower lying areas and some shallow diurnal cu during the daytime, but with deep mid-level dry air prevailing and warmer 700mb temperatures, rain chances will be near zero through Sunday.

Monday appears to be the warmest day of the forecast period, but not by much as high temperatures peak in the low to mid 80s and morning lows in the upper 50s to low 60s. As the shortwave ridging begins to amplify and propagate eastward downstream of a diggingtrough late in the weekend and into Monday, mid-upper level winds will begin to pivot from northwesterly to southwesterly. This will signal a change to our weather pattern as a frontal boundary approaches the area on Tuesday.
