10/14 Ryan’s “Fall Friday” Afternoon Forecast
Didn’t feel like much of a “Fall Friday” this afternoon thanks to slightly warmer temps, but we’ll see another cool and clear evening tonight. An area of moderately disturbed weather just to our NW continues moving toward the Great Lakes where it will eventually merge with a separate frontal system. Ridging continues to build over the East Coast, and a high pressure center will evenually be making its way Southwestward into our neck of the woods. This will cause a slight increase in temperatures as we begin next week, but another frontal system is poised to move through the area Thursday which will lower our temperatures significantly by the week’s end. There is still some disagreements with forecasting models as to when this front will move through. Stay tuned for updates.
Hurricane Nicole isn’t expected to make any further landfalls, but will remain a strong system over the next 5 days. It is expected to lose it’s tropical status within the next two days, but will retain its hurricane force winds as a post-tropical low. Some ocean swells are expected along the East Coast and Bermuda as a result of Nicole.
