Cool week – Rain Wednesday through Thursday – Cold next Weekend

A frosty start will set the pace for a colder than normal day with highs struggling into the low 50s north and upper 50s south. Even more widespread frost and freezing tonight as temps will dip to the 20s in the north and in the mountains, and low 30s elsewhere. Tomorrow will be about 5 degrees warmer than today. Temps hold steady for Wednesday with night temps in the 30s to about 40 and highs mid and upper 50s. Rain will also start to advance and will overspread the region by Wednesday night. Thursday will be WET! How wet depends on the eventual track of a Low that will develop along the east coast and ride up as a Nor'easter. That storm could drop 1 to 2 inches of rain for most and even more along the coastal region. That will need to be watched. Colder air will be pulled in behind it and Highs may struggle to reach 50 in the north by Friday and/or Saturday. Lows will dip into the 20s for many and we will officially end the growing season if not tonight.

Tomas in the tropics has weakened. He will likely regain hurricane strength but has some work to do to get there.

All for now!
