Near-perfect early Autumn weather continues
A near-perfect spell of weather continues under a sunny sky, a light southeast wind and high temperatures around 80-degrees. A cold front is forecast to move through on Wednesday night, with showers possible as early as Tuesday night. Thunderstorms will be more focused closer to the cold front, however. The periodic precipitation should come to an end on Thursday. Cooler, more seasonal temperatures will follow the front, with highs in the 60s from Thursday through Saturday.
Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook calls for near- to above-normal temperatures nationwide, except for cooler-than-normal conditions in the lower Southeast and the Pacific Northwest. Meanwhile, above-normal precipitation across the eastern one-third of the U.S. will contrast with drier-than-normal weather from California to the central and southern Plains.
