Forecast Discussion

After a long week of forecasting Ian, the forecast is on "Easy Street" for the next 8-9 days.

Ian's remnant low is drifting around off the Mid-Atlantic Coast today through Wednesday. It finally exits northeast Thursday. High pressure centered in Michigan today slides southeast.

Clouds finally relent gradually today. Temperatures are 5-8 degrees below seasonal averages through Tuesday. Frost is possible in deeper valleys tonight and Tuesday night. Wednesday through the daytime Friday are somewhat warmer (near-average temperatures).

A dry front moves through from the northwest Friday. An even chillier high takes over this weekend, and our first widespread frost is possible Saturday night. Dry weather holds through at least next Tuesday.
