10/03 Ryan’s “October Monday” Forecast

The first October Monday of the year ended up being a warmer, but still pleasant day. The drier conditions have continued through the weekend and other than a small chance of rain tomorrow, those conditions will continue for another week. The upper level ridging continues to build into the area, but will eventually give way to a frontal system from the West, which will move through the area over the weekend without much (if any) rain. At that point we’ll see temperatures return to the lower 80s, with nights dropping into the upper 50s and low 60s again.

A new area of disturbances has appeared in the Atlantic, just to the Northwest of Hurricane Matthew. This system only has a 60% chance of formation within the next two days as it’s expected to move into an area of wind shear which will limit development. Matthew continues to rage, remaining a strong category 4 storm and moving towards Haiti, Jamaica, and Cuba. It’s still too early to rule out interaction with the United States later in the week, and Matthew is expected to be at least a category 2 as it moves closer to the East Coast.
