A Return To Normalcy? Not For A While.
  • RAIN RELIEF IS NATE'S FATE: Remnant moisture and wind from T.S. Nate overspreading the eastern third of the U.S. will reinforce the summer-like pattern seen in these areas since late September. The upside will be a welcome relief of rain to many dry areas baked in the recent warmth. See below for 7-day precipitation projections.
  • TEMPS STAY WARM: Long range temperature indicators show above normal temperatures for the mid-south, mid-Atlantic and northeast should continue through much of October.
  • BERMUDA HIGH HOLDING: As shown in the steering currents image from University of Wisconsin, the clockwise spin of air in the west Atlantic is maintaining a moist, tropical hold on the eastern U.S. while allowing Nate to fuel the fire even more with an infusion of fresh Gulf moisture into the pattern.

What it all means?
Expect a warm, wet pattern through mid-October, returning to dry and windy toward end of the month. Unless of course the Gulf sends along another hurricane.

Andy, leave us a URL so the awesome comments community can stay in touch!

Foots is apparently shutting the doors on what made them a successful household name here in Bmore...so, so stupid and shortsighted...hope they've made bankruptcy plans ahead of time...

No loss, we've got Justin Berk, and he has apparently found a successful fusion between a crowd page and a business. Should have paid attention earlier there, Rich. This was never going to be weather.com, you should have known that...

Stupid is as stupid does. Bastardi's Weatherbell: actual talent fused with reality. JustinWeather, same. Foots...

Good night, and good luck. Highlands OUT.

I'm sorry...obviously I've missed something. What is changing? And why?
