Monday October 18
High Pressure is dominating most of the eastern half of the nation. With that, most of this week will be quiet. We begin on the chilly side of this air mass, but it will modify and warm up bringing 70s back mid week.
Next weekend, the next cold front will bring in colder air and the potential for the first frost of the season to inland suburbs.
You might want a jacket this morning, and may still need it this afternoon.
The 30s have shown up in western Maryland, so they might have frost already in the high mountain valleys.

Afternoon Wind Forecast
Winds will push 15 to 20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph.

Most of the week will be quiet. Winds will shift to being warming us again mid week, only to be followed by the next cold front late Thursday.
For now, this looks like a late day or evening FROPA (frontal passage) for us. The risk of rain will be late in the day or after dark.

The first local frost of the season may occur next Sunday morning.
