Joe’s Forecast

joeWarmer Weekend Ahead!

Cloudy skies took away our starry skies last night as well as our risk of having the first hard freeze of the season. However, if you protected those frost sensitive plants, you’ll need to uncover them before heading out today. After a variable cloudy start to your day we will enjoy increasing sunshine throughout the late morning hours and right on into the afternoon.  We will finally rebound closer to normal for the first time in several days. Highs are expected to climb into the middle 60′s.

After a seasonably mild day, expect overnight lows to likely fall into the middle and  upper 30′s. Get ready for a cool and crisp Friday night on the gridiron. So grab the hot beverages and blankets as you head out to the grandstands.

The weekend is looking picture perfect for checking out the fall foliage.  Get outside as we will enjoy highs nearing 70 degrees Saturday and into the lower 70′s on Sunday.  Saturday may feature an uptick of passing clouds with a weak front affecting areas mainly north of the Tri-Cities.  Staying mostly dry not only this weekend, but into the first half of next week as well.

The daily warming trend continues into the middle of next week. Expecting highs in the middle and upper 70′s Monday and Tuesday. Some areas west of the Tri-Cities could experience highs topping out near 80 degrees. I guess we’ll go ahead and call it Indian Summer.

Enjoy the heat while you still can, looks like changes could arrive by the start of November.

Enjoy the foliage this weekend and be sure to share your picures with us:
