Friday's Fall Front

We're getting ready for our first major front of the fall season and the big cooling trend that will follow for the weekend!

It's hard to believe, but we turn the calendar page over to the month of October on Saturday. To mark the arrival of a new month, we will bring in a noticeably cooler weather pattern - perfect for apple picking, tailgating, and football watching! Here's the timeline...

Friday will bring a strong cold front through the region. Behind this front, cool air that has been bottled up across Canada for most of the week will be allowed to surge southward. The cooler air will be first noticed on Saturday morning, when our morning lows will start out in the mid to upper 40s. The afternoon on Saturday will be a bit cloudy and temperatures will be well below the average, with highs only in the upper 50s to near 60 degrees. Saturday night the skies will begin to clear and this will set the stage for a very crisp and cool night. Lows will dip to near the 40 degree mark on Sunday morning, with Sunday's highs near 60 degrees under bright sunny skies.

The blast of chilly air will only be here for a limited time only. Monday through Wednesday of next week will bring temperatures back through the mid and upper 70s under bright, sunny skies.

With this shot of cool air moving in, I have a question for you - what's your favorite thing about fall and the weather that typically accompanies it? Or if you're not a fan of this weather, what don't you like about it? I welcome your responses in the comment section of this blog!
