First off, today will be one of the best weather days of the fall so far! Temps will be generally in the 70 to 75 degree range! Always a lot to do in fall with Fall festivals and the like (we love Cox Farms here in Northern Virginia http://www.coxfarms.com/ ) and I am sure many others know of places to visit! Cool nights will continue with daytime highs 70 to 80 for most of the region (70 north, near 80 south) through the week! Wednesday looks like the next best day to see some rain showers and we will have to see what takes shape exactly here. A strong front will cross the country and may set the stage for some severe weather as well. 70 to 80 degree temps will continue to next Saturday when yet another cold front will cross the region. Behind this front we may see the coldest intrusion we have seen this year! Highs may be in the 50s for some and the first frosts and freezes could hit the mountains and up near the PA/MD border northward.
Around the country, the Rockies will see their first true snow storm of the season, and the far south could see another bout of extremely heavy rains (not good for them).
Tropics look pretty quite right now. Will have to watch for a system about mid way through the Atlantic Basin, but not sure it will amount to much as of now.
All for now.
