The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from meteorologist Kevin Appleby:
We saw a couple pop-up showers Sunday, with a focus in some of the higher terrain. This was thanks to a blustery wind off of the Great Lakes. Otherwise, temperatures were seasonable with partly to mostly cloudy skies.
It’s shaping up to be the coolest night of October Sunday night, but that’s not saying much considering how warm it was to open the month. Temperatures will drop through the 40s and potentially into the upper 30s in the higher terrain, with any lingering shower activity shutting off by midnight.
The main story for the next three days will be the lingering presence of an upper level low in Southern Canada, which was responsible for Saturday’s washout across the Capital Region. With this being so close to us, I cannot rule out a few pop-up showers each day.
The end of the holiday weekend will resemble Sunday’s weather, with some afternoon showers especially in the higher terrain. High temperatures should be a bit lower, however.
Temperatures will hover in the upper 50s and lower 60s Tuesday and Wednesday, with the continued small chance for a shower or two.
A weak front will try to swing through our region Thursday, which may be enough to fire up a couple more showers. Behind it though, Friday looks like a great day!
It wouldn’t be a weekend here without us having to watch some kind of big system. A coastal storm could potentially bring several days of rain. Timing is a bit up in the air due to model differences, but from Saturday on we will see the threat for a steady rain.
