DCA hit 90*F today. Topped out at 88.7*F here.

Dewpoint is now 75*F as the Sun sets. Disgusting weather by October standards.

90* today. Not great however cooler weather on the way Sat.
We should see 80-82* with rain late and rain over the next 4 days thereafter. Looks like fall is here. Possibility of a high near 79 in a week. We’ll see how that pans out.
Sweet👍

Pop-up downpour with sunny skies here. Tiny cell with nothing else in the region, haha.

Dewpoint hovering in the mid-70s, temps in the low 80s.

The move to autumn might finally begin later this week following the passage of hurricane Michael. The Bermuda High looks to begin weakening with some troughing moving in over the weekend.

Might still be a prolonged process with numerous ups/downs along the way, but in the long run, I think it’s safe to say this will be a turning point, as far as the seasonal transition is concerned.

Until then, we still have a few more warm/humid days left in the pipeline this week.

got to give credit on this one to Larry Cosgrove as he was talking about this set up for the past few month quite a good forecast from him.

We got 1 1/2" of rain with this last fron in Texas

Hurricane Michael is almost a Cat 5. It hasn't gotten the publicity it needs as it will have a 12-15' storm surge.
They're saying this is the strongest storm Florida has seen in 100 yrs.

That was a legit front last night. Dewpoint has dropped over 30 degrees since this time yesterday. Winds were reaching 40-50mph from 2AM to 4AM during the heart of the pressure surge.

Currently 62/45 with a deep blue autumn sky and bright sunshine.

The last time in snowed in October in Amarillo was on October 27, 2011.

The National Weather Service said it is expected it will rain early Sunday morning in Amarillo that will transition to snow around sunrise.

Red Sky at Morning.
This was our sunrise this morning taken from down the road from me.

This is the PreShow before all the rain and flash flooding we'll have this coming week.

Down into the upper 40s this evening for the first time since late May/early June. Expecting some chilly showers overnight with the shortwave passage then more gusty NW winds tomorrow afternoon. Lows could drop into the mid/upper 30s Sunday/Monday as well, with some frost also possible.

Remarkable early Fall weather all around.

Texas is getting plenty of rain. Downpours, flash flooding all around N Tx. Very dark skies. We have a week of this ahead. I’ve already received over 1.50” heavy rain this a.m.

Hopefully Tx has dodged the Tropical Storm/ Hurricane season.

What a switch on national weather this week!

Almost 2hrs after my last post we've received another 1 inch of rain.

That 2.50" just this morning. Still dark out and raining. Glad I got that yard work done yesterday morning ! :)

Today was cloudy, misty, and mild with highs in the mid/upper 60s. Some squally rains in the AM hours too.

Next front is approaching from the west now..looks pretty sharp as of 630pm w/ the pencil-thin convective line along it. Winds to ~50mph are already occurring in the mountains. Could get gusty here after midnight.

Tomorrow looks cool, breezy, and sunny. Finally some autumn-like weather!

Gusting in the 30-35mph range behind the front. A rush of cool, dry air was apparent with the first gust..feels great out there.

Downsloping in a big way right now..highs will probably push 70*F before the dry cold front moves through this afternoon.

Right now it’s a 63/37, which is the lowest dewpoint in over half a year..feels almost desert-like. Winds are gusty out of the west at ~ 30mph, should switch to NW this afternoon and increase to ~ 40mph.

Total 46+”

We’re 20” over normal rainfall. Over half since Sept 1st.
This past week has become a challenge with flooding, buckling roads etc.

More expected next week. Only an inch they say. 😆

Looks like they finally fixed/replaced the Dolly Sods mountaintop weather station (after it was taken out by the windstorm on March 2nd).

Nice to have another station other than just Snowshoe representing the ridgeline communities.

Tonight looks interesting. Vigorous embedded shortwave trough moves through the area during the overnight hours tonight. Decent gradient/CAA with a downslope component in conjunction with enhanced upper level dynamics would seem to favor gusts at/above 45mph after midnight tonight in areas along/west of the Fall Line, but so far LWX has confined the wind advisory to areas along/west of the Blue Ridge, due to reservations about nocturnal mixing.

FWIW, I’m pretty bullish on advisory criteria winds reaching the I-95 corridor along/west of the Fall Line (from DCA northward) late tonight/early tomorrow morning, even if the gusts are intermittent. South of DCA probably falls just short except in areas near water/NNW topographical channeling.

Having studied these events for awhile now, this one feels like a decent setup for gusts in the climatologically-favored areas, particularly Parrs ridge and the N-VA piedmont areas including Leesburg/Reston. Typically, when CAA is vigorous in conjunction w/ a nearby 500mb vort track, those winds will mix down intermittently, even under nocturnal boundary conditions, so long as the pressure gradient axis at the top of the mixing layer is at least 45 degrees off the axis of the ridgelines. The sustained winds are weaker in the absence of insolation, and often the gusts are less frequent, but they still tend to mix down in an isolated or scattered manner.
