Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, October 13, 2015 at 6:53AM


Showers passed quickly in the overnight hours ahead of fast moving cold front. Early clouds give way to abundant sunshine and so the sunny story goes through the foreseeable future. The next seven days (or more) are quintessential Fall. Note to self, expect a widespread frost/freeze Saturday and Sunday nights as noticeably cooler air makes inroads this weekend.

The RWC 2015-2016 Winter Fearless Forecast is now available. Get a hot beverage before you read it. :-)

Forecast Discussion

There are two cold fronts slated for passage this week. Overnight showers were a precursor to the first front which scoots east quickly this morning. Early clouds give way to plenty of afternoon sunshine and breezy conditions. Today's temperatures are similar to Monday as the core of the cooler air doesn't arrive until tonight, but the rest of the week isn't as "mild".

The second front arrives Friday evening and it has even less moisture to work with. However, the airmass behind the front is of Canadian origin so it packs true wallop of colder conditions. We'll go from seasonal temperatures Friday to 10 degrees below normal on the top and bottom end this weekend. Frost and freezing conditions arrive with much of the region at or below freezing Saturday and Sunday nights. See our Frost and Freeze Page for details on average first frost.

The first half of next week should be dry as high pressure remains the dominating theme. Temperatures begin to rebound to seasonal levels Tuesday.
