Lows this morning ran from 33-44.  Coldest pockets were where sky stayed clear & winds were calm.  Patchy fog also occurred.

Highs today reached 57-63 with partly cloudy skies & a northwest breeze.

Frost Advisory is up for our northeastern counties for tonight.

Lows will run 33-39 tonight, coolest readings in the Frost Advisory area with patchy clouds & a very light northeast wind.

It will turn mostly cloudy Saturday, followed by scattered showers Saturday night.  Winds will turn from east-southeast to south, then south-southwest Saturday with highs 60-65.

Showers Saturday night to Sunday will taper Sunday afternoon (50%).  A few showers/t'showers (30%) may then bubble up in the cooler air aloft Sunday afternoon-evening as some sun pokes through in places.  South-southwest will become west to northwest.

Highs of 55 north to 64 southwest & south are likely.

Areas of fog with patchy frost will occur Sunday night.  Lows of 33-38 are likely.

Monday looks great with sunny skies & highs 64-70 with a south wind 10-15 mph.

A clipper system will pivot northeast of the area Tuesday with gusty southwest winds & highs 71-76.  A band of cloudiness with the system may bring a couple isolated showers late in the day.

Wednesday looks windy with very dry air (dew points 30s) with highs 74-80 & mostly sunny skies.  This will occur as clipper passes well northeast of our area.

Thursday looks a bit cooler with 67-75 after morning lows of 41-46.

The wind cranks back up from the southwest with very dry air & highs 76-82 Friday.

Saturday looks quite warm & windy with 81-86.

Meanwhile, monster storm will head for the West Coast (after storm merges with remnants of Hurricane Marie) & hurricane will approach & make landfall in Florida.

We continue to look warmer than normal & quite dry & breezy to windy October 10-14. 

It still appears a rather strong cold front will pass through around October 15 & we should go from 80-85 to 29-35 with frost in 48 hours.

This cold front looks to bring some severe weather from Minnesota & Iowa to Nebraska to Oklahoma & Missouri.

We looks awfully dry here & severe weather will tend to occur to the west of us in a plume of higher dew points.  That said, 30% coverage of showers/storms should suffice this far out.

Cool-down should be followed by a warm-up to 70s by October 20 & even around 80 by October 21. 

Another strong cold front should pass, but we looked parched for moisture.  20% coverage of any rainfall looks good here right now, but in tongue of higher dew points & instability, some severe weather risk could develop in Oklahoma & Missouri to Arkansas.
