METEOROLOGIST MELISSA FREY’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Monday’s high temperature of 83 degrees was 12 degrees above average for this time of year. These dry, sunny, warm days are not typical October weather and at least the warm part may be a thing of the past.
The west coast of Canada remains in the jet stream’s path and continues to get hammered with storm after storm, all the while, high pressure sits in the northern Pacific, blocking any of those storms from coming our way.
This will be the set up for the rest of the week, leaving us sunny and dry through the weekend. Despite the clear skies we will still see our temperatures drop. With clear skies overnight, we’ll inevitably drop quite a bit, but even day time temperatures will be cool as the air mass that is moving in on top of us is a cool one
Starting Tuesday highs will drop to the mid 70s and overnight lows will drop to the mid 30s. Perfect pumpkin patch weather!
Enjoy it while it lasts!
