12:30 PM | *Major storm threat this weekend along the eastern seaboard and a category 5 hurricane in the Pacific Ocean may play a role*

Paul Dorian

The month of October has a way of ending on occasion with very powerful storms near the east coast of the US including Hurricane Sandy in 2012 and the “perfect” storm on Halloween Day in 1991. There continue to be strong signals for a major storm along the eastern seaboard this weekend that could actually get a boost of energy and moisture from a category 5 hurricane in the northeastern Pacific Ocean. Heavy rain and strong winds are the main threats in the immediate I-95 corridor region from DC-to-Philly-to-NYC, but snow is on the table from this potential nor’easter in the higher elevation regions from West Virginia to interior New England. This could turn out to be a rather long-lasting storm as well given the expected very large-scale upper-level trough that will set up during the weekend.

8:00 AM | *The fast approaching solar minimum and its potential impact on the upcoming winter season*

Paul Dorian

In the long term, the sun is the main driver of all weather and climate and multi-decadal trends in solar activity can have major impacts on oceanic and atmospheric temperatures. In addition, empirical observations have shown that the sun can have important ramifications on weather and climate on shorter time scales including those associated with the average solar cycle of around 11-years. For example, there is evidence that low solar activity during solar minimum years tend to be well-correlated with more frequent “high-latitude blocking” events compared to normal and this type of atmospheric phenomenon can play an important role in the winter season.

7:00 AM | *A frosty start to the day as chilly pattern continues...major storm threat continues for the weekend with heavy rain potential for us*

Paul Dorian

The colder-than-normal weather pattern that set up after the passage of Hurricane Michael will continue right into the end of the month. High pressure on top of the region today will push to the east and give way to another cold frontal system later Tuesday that will usher in a renewed chilly air mass for the middle and latter parts of the week. High pressure will resume control of the weather following the frontal passage and we’ll experience plenty of sunshine to go along with the below-normal temperatures. There are still strong signs for a big storm to form this weekend somewhere near or along the east coast with heavy rain potential for us...we’ll continue to monitor that possibility over the next few days.

7:00 AM | High temperatures generally near the 80 degree mark this week

Paul Dorian

High pressure over the Mid-Atlantic region as we begin the new work week will shift off the coast to a position over the western Atlantic. As such, our low-level flow of air will become onshore and the easterly winds will confine high temperatures to the lower 80’s for much of the week. The chance for showers will continue as well on a daily basis as several weak frontal systems will generate unsettled conditions across central Florida.

7:00 AM | Cool pattern continues in much of the eastern US

Paul Dorian

High pressure over the Mid-Atlantic region today will shift to the east and out over the western part of the Atlantic Ocean. A frontal system will arrive in the region on Tuesday and northeasterly winds will develop following its passage. While weak disturbances will trek our way over the next few days, precipitation chances will be limited in the dry air mass that follows the frontal passage.

3:15 PM | *Storm threat continues for next weekend*

Paul Dorian

There continue to be signals for a strong storm to form near the east coast towards the latter part of the month and it will be something to monitor in coming days. Cold air outbreaks will continue to drop southeastward into the eastern US over the next several days and by the latter part of next week vigorous energy in the upper part of the atmosphere may result in a deep negatively-tilted trough aloft. The end result may be a strong storm right near the Mid-Atlantic coastline sometime next weekend.

7:00 AM | *Another cold air outbreak arrives tomorrow night*

Paul Dorian

After a frosty start to the day, sunshine will boost afternoon temperatures to near 60 degrees and it'll turn a bit milder on Saturday ahead of the next strong cold front. The arrival of the next cold air outbreak will be accompanied by strong NW winds from late tomorrow into Sunday and temperatures will be well below-normal to close out the weekend. Frost will again be possible around here by early Monday morning with temperatures likely in the low-to-mid 30's as we begin the new work week.

7:00 AM | A nice way to end the work week

Paul Dorian

As high pressure shifts to the east today, our low-level winds will shift to more of a southwesterly direction and we’ll head back into the middle 70’s for afternoon highs. The chance for showers will increase late tonight and early Saturday as the next in a series of cool fronts arrives in the Tennessee Valley.
