After an extremely pleasant weekend with clear skies and Indian Summer temperatures, a strong October low pressure system will move through the region during Monday and affect our weather for the next two days.
Monday will see continued warmer temperatures but will experience rain showers in advance of a frontal passage Monday night. Strong winds will accompany this system passage prompting wind advisories, especially in marine areas. This turbulent atmosphere will yield Good Air Quality. Following winds behind the frontal system will be cooler and clean giving us continued Good Air Quality.
Quieter weather is on tap for the last half of the week although the models indicate a small Wednesday night system with accompanying scattered rain showers.
Passing weekend high pressure will return winds to the southwest and moderate warming. Air Quality will be mostly Good with scattered Moderate particulate concentrations. An anticipated Monday front will return northwest winds to the region.
Air Quality should be mostly Good going into the next work week.
