Classic October Weather

After our lengthy warm spell, we’re finally into a more typical weather pattern for the month of October. Expect a generally clear period that will extend right on into the upcoming weekend. Temperatures will be on a gradual ascent over the next several days. Mornings will be particularly cool, especially the next couple. There may even be some frost patches around first thing Wednesday away from the towns and cities.

With the advent of cooler weather, you may be thinking about the winter forecast. And yes, our Fearless Winter Forecast will appear before the end of this week.

The 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is packed with great photography from the RaysWeather.Com Photo Contest. It has climate information for the entire Parkway and includes pages for November/December 2017 so it can be used soon. Get yours at RaysMarketplace.Com or at many retails across the region.

Forecast Discussion

Tonight’s temperatures will be very similar as last night with lows in the lower 40s to upper 30s in outlying areas, perhaps a degree or two cooler in spots.

On average, October is our driest month of the year. That fact will be true to form this week, as we expect an absence of precipitation. In fact, we won’t even see that much cloudiness. Temperatures will be slowly moderating this week as high pressure gradually shifts offshore. It’s going to be a great stretch of weather to enjoy fall foliage.

By early next week, we’ll be monitoring the progress of our next weather-maker that could bring our next shot at some rainfall during the Monday-Tuesday timeframe.
