Weather forecast: Drying out today, late week weather ‘mischief’

Today will likely be the nicest and driest day of the week for most despite the stubborn clouds of the morning.

We may even see a glimpse or two of the sun before the afternoon is out. Temperatures will make a run at the 50 degree mark thanks to some of that late day sun. By this time we will have watched a massive nationwide storm system that will have stretched across the United States slowly work its way into the Mid-Atlantic by Wednesday night and Thursday. It will combine with what is soon to be Hurricane Zeta (landfall somewhere in Louisiana Wednesday). The northern edge of this storm will bring showers of rain to areas largely south of the Thruway by tomorrow afternoon with a few wet snow flakes thrown in for “good measure” late Thursday night into Friday morning.

It looks like areas north of the thruway will only see some novelty wet snowflakes. Areas south of the Thruway and in the highest elevations above 2000 feet could see a very small accumulation of snow. To get a breakdown of what to expect, here is an article on what could be our first snow of the season.

 As the forecast stands now, the storm system moves out Friday afternoon and evening ushering in a cold, but sunny Halloween. The next cold front will make its approach quickly on Sunday setting the stage for a freshening breeze, an increase in clouds, and a few showers. Enough cold air will follow late Sunday night into Monday to allow for yet ANOTHER opportunity to see a few flakes of snow.
