Sunday October 2 2022 Forecast (8:11AM)

Yesterday it was more about the remnant rain from Ian, which did deliver over 1 inch for parts of the immediate South Coast, while much less fell elsewhere. Today, it’s more about the wind. The gradient between the elongating low that was once the hurricane and a stronger high pressure area to the north will create a blustery northeasterly wind in our region, along with lots of cloudiness and a continuation of below normal temperatures. Rainfall today though will be largely absent, limited to a spotty and very light around Cape Cod and the Islands for a while this morning. High pressure then gains ground tonight through early Tuesday, keeping us dry, but still cool as that low pressure area will remain to the south and we keep a generally northeasterly air flow, though lighter as the tighter gradient is displaced to the south. The western portion of the elongated low will consolidate into a renewed storm system that will make a bit of a run back to the north, definitely enough to increase the wind and cloud cover again heading through later Tuesday and Wednesday, and probably enough to clip at least Cape Cod with some additional rainfall. Finally, all of it should be out of here Tuesday as the upper pattern shifts to kick the low pressure area out to sea and allow high pressure to build in.

TODAY: Mostly cloudy with a few intervals of sun possible at times as well. Very light rain possible Cape Cod / Islands mainly during the morning. Highs 56-63. Wind NE 10-20 MPH, gusts up to 30 MPH near the coast.

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Lows 47-54. Wind E 5-15 MPH, higher gusts.

MONDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 58-65. Wind NE 5-15 MPH.

MONDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Lows 46-53. Wind NE 5-15 MPH.

TUESDAY: Variably cloudy. Highs 56-63. Wind NE 5-15 MPH, higher gusts.

TUESDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Chance of rain Cape Cod / South Coast. Lows 46-53. Wind NE 5-15 MPH, higher gusts especially South Coast.

WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy with possible rain South Coast favoring Cape Cod. Partial sun elsewhere. Highs 57-64. Wind NE-N 10-20 MPH and gusty, probably somewhat stronger Cape Cod.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 44-51. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.

THURSDAY: Sun/cloud mix. Highs 66-73. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (OCTOBER 7-11)

Some late-week changes with a strong cold front approaching October 7, still mild but with a gusty breeze, maybe a passing shower by evening. Breezy and cool but dry weather over the October 8-9 weekend. A reinforcing cold front may bring a shot of even cooler air for October 10 before a milder rebound to end the period.

DAYS 11-15 (OCTOBER 12-16)

Only expecting one brief shower threat from a cold front mid period, preceded by fair and milder weather and followed by a cool shot.

  1. Thanks TK
    It was nice to see the sun for a little bit yesterday as that was not unexpected where I live.

  2. Thanks TK.

    Cloudy, windy and cold out on the softball field this am in Franklin CT. Wind is easily gusting over 30. It is less than pleasant. About the only good thing is that it isnt raining.

    Yesterday ended up 95% dry here and we only ended up with .02” of rain. A bit of a forecast bust by many of the CT news outlets, including the NWS, who had it raining much of the day.

  3. Mark I didn’t think I was going to see the sun yesterday. With that little sun temps got into the low to mid 60s across part of CT where the forecast called for temps in the mid to upper 50s.

    1. Yes it actually ended up being a very pleasant afternoon. We ended up doing a short hike and were down to just our tee shirts by the end of it.

  4. JJ we went to the Yankees game Friday night and unfortunately did not see Judge hit 62 but what an atmosphere! Sell out crowd with everyone standing every time he got to the plate with their cell phones out. You could hear a pin drop in the Stadium it was so quiet before every pitch.

    Cant imagine the pressure he is feeling every time he come up to the plate. Hopefully he gets it today in front of the home crowd.

      1. I saw that. Looks like there is a shot at the first real widespread accumulating snow up there in the NNE mountains and ADKs with that reinforcing shot of cold air on Columbus Day.

    1. Companies are in such a rush these days. DD introduces its pumpkin spice in July, now ski areas are opening up and it’s not even Columbus Day yet!

      1. It was actually just their annual snowmaking equipment test before the start of the season but if this weather pattern holds, I could see places like Killington start to try and get a base going on North Ridge in the next few weeks.

        1. OK, now I understand. Even the next few weeks is still a bit early to try to open imo, not that I’m a skier. Mid-late November seems more reasonable to me for an early start.

        1. That’s normal. BJ’s puts out their first stuff late August / early September. When I was little, I remember seeing the first Christmas commercial every year around October 10.

          1. When Mac and I were married on. December 9, 1978, we put our tree up just before the wedding. We had a lot of folks arriving from out of state and country. There were absolutely no personal Christmas lights up anywhere then

            I love when they are out. The earlier the better. In ski areas they are …or were ….out all winter.

            1. To add. When Mac and I were very young, our trees went up Christmas Eve. Our moms….who didn’t know each other at that time…decided that was too much to do last minute and way overwhelming for the kids. So they started putting the tree up earlier

    1. I have to admit, that’s one of the better ones I’ve seen…. 😉

      That kind of humor is right up my alley.

  5. Thanks TK !

    Down by northern end of Buzzards Bay and it rained significantly yesterday.

    Very breezy today, but dry, which makes all the difference.

  6. The coastal area of the Delmarva Peninsula is going to have a stormy next 48 hrs. Not Ian directly, but a low that develops from the old remains of Ian. Tides are running high and they have 4 or so high tide cycles to go with persistent decent onshore flow.

  7. On this date in 1978, the Red Sox lost a heartbreaker 5-4 in a “one-game playoff” for the AL division. In those days only the division winner made the playoffs. No such thing as a “wild card”.

    Bleeping Bucky Dent!!! 🙁

    The weather was absolutely beautiful with deep blue skies and mild temperatures iirc.

    1. Why blame Bucky Dent? Wasn’t it Mike Torrez who served
      up the meatball? Blame him, not Dent. Dent was just doing his job.

      1. In history….a few days ago.Sept 28 was the anniversary of both Ted’s .406 where he refused to sit the game out when the manager suggested he do so to keep the average from dropping below 400. And it was the anniversary of his last at bat which was a home run.

      1. Of course Mike Torez shares the blame, that goes without saying. Still, that might have been a very long “out” in many ballparks. When Dent first swung, at least from my naked eye, it appeared he was jammed and would be a harmless fly out. Frankly I would have been shocked if it had scraped the monster wall let alone leave the park.

        Let’s see, didn’t we acquire Torez from the Yankees? 😉

        1. Fwiw it seems difficult to me to blame any one person for a loss. Or credit any one with a win for that matter.

          1. Actually, from my naked eye, Yaz (the final out) popped up what might have been the game winning home run. I always felt that Gossage got away with one. 😉

  8. Mark I hope Aaron Judge hits the record 62nd home run today as this is the regular season home finale. Too bad when you went on Friday night he did not do it. In addition to the American League Home Run Record Aaron Judge could be the first player since Miguel Cabrera in 2012 to win the triple crown. He is going to get a big pay day at the end of the season. He turned down a 7yr 213 million dollar contract and bet on himself and the gamble paid off.

    1. As ridiculous as the contract is that he is going to get, I will be irate if the Yankees don’t find a way to resign him!

      1. Yes. His next home run would be both the Yankees and American League record for most homers regardless. Though if you take the steroid era out of the equation it would also be the major league record.

        1. Thanks Mark. Then to me it should be a record. You probably don’t have to guess how I feel about anyone who used steroids being credited with anything 🙂

    1. Great time lapse today with the undercast! Love how it just disintegrates around mid morning. Much nicer day up there than what we are dealing with.

    2. Awesome! When did that put that great observation deck in there? I don’t recall seeing that last time I was up there.

      Btw, the last time I was up there was the late 60s. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  9. CPC continues to increase the % chances for continued below normal temps in the 6-10 and expand the area of below normal temps in the 8-14, and their 30-day update has also zapped all the warmth and replaced it with a much cooler outlook for the Northeast through October. Again, I agree.
