DAYS 1-5 (SEPTEMBER 26-30)
We’ve gotten rid of the low pressure area, formerly Ophelia, that plagued the area with more rain at times the last 3 days, but today we keep a lot of clouds from a northeasterly air flow supplying low level moisture while a disturbance rides over the top of that across the region. High pressure builds in for midweek with fair weather and finally plenty of sunshine, but we may have a stop at a proverbial weather toll booth on Friday as that low pressure hanging around to our south nudges northward enough to bring at least a mostly cloudy sky and possibly some wet weather into the region. With luck, and I think luck will be on our side, we’ll see the high pressure to the north re-establish control and push that out of here in time for the start of the weekend on Saturday, which is also the final day of the month.

DAYS 6-10 (OCTOBER 1-5)
No big changes here. Still optimistic that high pressure dominates with a drier pattern and a seasonable to mild temperature trend for the first few days of the month, then a weak cold front from Canada bringing in cooler air later in the period. All the while we watch the tendency for low pressure to hang around to our south and hope it stays down there this time…
DAYS 11-15 (OCTOBER 6-10)
Cautious optimism continues about a continued drier pattern with temperatures near to slightly above normal, but somewhat variable. Still we’ll be in a pattern that needs us to eye low pressure to our south at times.
