Chilly fall temperatures continue

It certainly felt more like fall this past weekend, with daily high temperatures in the mid 50s°F (10s°C) and winds gusting close to 30 mph, thanks to the jet stream over the eastern U.S.

Yesterday evening, a cold front slid past the area, which will keep temperatures cool for the first half of the week. Today, a cold high pressure has been working in from the west, limiting today’s high to around 49°F and keeping winds much calmer than we’ve seen over the last few days. The high pressure will begin move offshore tomorrow, with a weak cold front trailing behind. Temperatures tomorrow should be cool again, with a high in the low 50s°F (10s°C), and the possibility for light showers ahead of the front. There is a strong low pressure system forecasted to move from the Great Lakes region into Eastern Ontario/Quebec toward the end of the week. Though temperatures should be mild ahead of this system (expect a high Thursday in the upper 50s°F (10s °C), the associated cold front poses a significant threat of heavier showers Thursday evening into Friday.
