There is a deep, broad area of High Pressure that is continuing to extend over the plains and much of the Eastern half of the nation. There is still lingering rain along the Atlantic Coastline that is associated with a recently departed cold front. This high pressure will bring continued sunny skies and a much cooler air mass over much of the nation

As this ridge of high pressure continues to extend over area, we sit to the East of the center. This means that, as anti-cyclonic rotation is clockwise, we are currently seeing winds with North and NE motion. The closer the center of this circulation moves to our area, the more we will see winds calm down and begin to shift.
Our region will remain under the influence of this High for the next several days. That means Mostly Sunny skies, Seasonably Cold Temperatures and Near Freezing Overnight Lows.
Conditions will begin to return to average toward the weekend.
For the rest of the day
Expect to see sunny skies, coupled with seasonably cool conditions and a moderate wind out of the North and NE, becoming breezy at times. Temperatures will top out in the lower 60's. Average temperatures for this time of the year are 46/70. So, we are about 10-12 degrees cooler than normal, throughout the day.
Overnight, we will see temperatures drop well into the lower to mid 30's with a light and variable wind and clear skies.
Near freezing temperatures will be abundant throughout the viewing area for the first time this fall.
So remember the 3 P's
