Warmer Monday and much wetter by the middle of next week

The WTVA Severe Weather Authority has a summary of what you can expect in the coming days.


The remainder of Sunday night will be similar to Saturday night. Skies remain partly to mostly cloudy across the area. Temperatures will fall again into the middle to lower 50s across our area. A light isolated shower while not impossible is certainly not likely to occur.

The new week starts with a few more breaks in the clouds. This should allow temperatures to climb out of the mid-50s tomorrow morning into the lower 70s by the late afternoon. Rain chances will remain elevated to the northwest of our area.

The forecast gets more interesting by the middle of next week. Our attention will be focused on two primary features. We will be watching Zeta as the tropical system, which could eventually become a hurricane, is expected to track to the north possibly taking a path through the central Gulf of Mexico that could lead to the system passing near or even through our region between Wednesday and Thursday. There is still quite a bit of uncertainty regarding the eventual track and intensity that Zeta will achieve over the next few days, but the system will have the potential for big impacts on our forecast.

The other feature we will be watching is a developing area of low pressure to our west. This feature will dig into the central plains and bring its own chances for rain as well as the potential for some storms.

How these two features interact with each other will determine the mid-week forecast.

The good news is that a number of model solutions are increasingly suggesting that Zeta and the above-mentioned area of low-pressure will quickly exit the region. It is possible that most (if not all) of Friday (including those Friday Night Fever games) will stay dry and slightly cooler. Highs in the lower & mid-60s are anticipated. Jackets may come in handy at those football games as we expect to dip into the mid & upper 40s by Halloween morning.

The best news is that Halloween looks even more likely to be dry with clear skies in the forecast. This should be a great setup for anyone that may have outdoor plans for the holiday weekend.
