Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated 9:54 p.m. Oct. 9, 2015
A strong cold front is marched into the listening area early Friday night, bringing a round of showers and storms. The front has passed and left northerly winds and drier and cooler air in its wake overnight. The sky will partially clear with lows in the 50s and a breeze at 10-15 mph. This will set the stage for cooler but pleasant weather Saturday as the clouds break for sunshine. Highs will only be in the middle to upper 60s which is a few degrees below average and about 10 to 15 degrees cooler than Friday. While it will be breezy early in the morning, the wind will subside by afternoon as high pressure settled into the Mid-Atlantic states. With this protective high pressure cell overhead Saturday night, temperatures will plummet under a clear sky with lows in the upper 30s in some of our coolest suburbs to the upper 40s in the metro area. Despite the chilly start Sunday, temperatures will recover nicely with abundant sunshine and highs will reach around 70 degrees. The fabulous fall weather will continue into Monday and temperatures will warm as winds become southerly ahead of the next cold front. By Tuesday, however, the cold front will march through the area, accompanied by clouds and light rain showers.
