PM Update: The calm before the storm?
Ida's moisture to threaten area Wednesday
Though we saw a lot of clouds today they were high and thin enough to allow temperatures to remain quite mild. Highs have reached into the mid-60s across most of the area -- still above average for the date. All the mild is coming to an end soon though, and tomorrow will be much cooler for sure. The big question is how much rain can we expect from the remnants of Ida?
Through Tonight: We should stay dry through much of the evening, but showers could move in from the south/southwest by around midnight, give or take a couple hours. Any rain that falls tonight should be mostly light, though we may see an increase in intensity toward sunrise. Lows should fall to the mid-to-upper 40s.
Tomorrow (Veterans Day): While the most intense rain still appears to setup south of us, we may be rainier tomorrow than first advertised. There should be a sharp cutoff across or near the area, with some southern spots maybe getting significant rain and others to the north not so much. Either way, with plenty of clouds and an increasing breeze from the northeast we should stay rather cool with highs from the upper 40s (especially if we get into the steady rains) to perhaps the mid-50s.
Cold October: October was not just cold and wet here, but throughout most of the country. Based on preliminary data, NOAA says this October was the 3rd coldest on record for the United States and temperatures were below normal in 8 of the 9 climate regions. Only the Southeast was near average, and only Florida was above average. It was also the wettest October on record in 115 years of data.
